About the Center
The Center for Law & Religious Freedom, the advocacy ministry of Christian Legal Society, defends and advances all Americans’ inalienable rights to religious freedom and life in the public square.
Founded in 1975 as the advocacy arm of the Christian Legal Society, the Center for Law and Religious Freedom is America’s original Christian ministry designed to advance religious freedom. For forty years, the Center’s mission has focused on the protection of religious freedom and the sanctity of human life in the courts, legislatures, and the public square. The Center pursues a pluralistic vision of a free civil society that respects all Americans’ religious freedom and free speech. The Center also believes that strengthening international religious freedom depends on Americans’ robust commitment to domestic religious liberty. To that end, the Center works with organizations across the political and religious spectrum to defend religious freedom, freedom of speech, and the sanctity of human life.
