Our Mission

Launched in 2006, the Humanist Legal Center is the legal arm of the American Humanist Association. The Legal Center’s team of attorneys, through trial and appellate litigation, amicus activity, and other legal work, provide the zealous advocacy that humanists and others need to defend constitutional rights and strengthen the wall of separation between church and state.

Our legal staff includes Legal & Policy Director Lily Bolourian, plus a network of volunteer attorneys from around the country, including humanist luminaries such as Jim McCollum, Wendy Kaminer, and Michael Newdow.
