Lawyers Defending American Democracy is a coalition of lawyers united in the defense of our democracy.

Who We Are —

We believe that as members of the legal community, we have a unique responsibility to defend the Constitution and values on which our democracy depends.

Our Efforts —

We have authored numerous letters, briefs and statements concerning threats to our democracy and press the legal community to support and defend the Constitution. 

Take Action —

Be a part of our efforts to demand accountability for those in our profession who do not live up to their oath and to their ethical obligations.
