The Center for Antiracist Research submits amicus briefs in a small number of cases each year, prioritizing cases where racism may be a central issue but is not a focus of the parties’ briefs.
Amicus briefs are brought by individuals or groups who are not parties to a legal case but have a strong interest in its outcome. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the Center and the vast expertise of its staff and affiliated scholars, we are well-situated to supply meaningful and effective amicus briefs that engage science, data, history, and law to demonstrate how racism manifests in U.S. society and how it can be mitigated. Our practice focuses on filing amicus briefs before the United States Supreme Court and state supreme courts.
