Participate in the Legal Project
Report a Case
If you believe you may the target of a lawsuit because of comments you made regarding radical Islam, terrorism or related issues, we may be able to assist you in finding help.
Remember you need not be a politician, blogger, or author to fall victim to a predatory suit. While our client list includes many of the former, we have also aided individuals for example facing workplace discipline for posting comments regarding radical Islam on a web forum.
Email Nunberg@meforum.org to schedule a confidential meeting.
Legal Clerkships or Internships are available each semester and during the summer to law students and undergraduates with relevant majors.
Legal Clerks/Interns assist on a variety of projects including analysis of developments in libel law and new media (e.g., bloggers), "hate speech" litigation in Canada and Europe, movements in international law to criminalize defamation of religion, and case specific legal research.
Interns also assist on routine assignments such as news-scans, grant proposals and updating an online library of relevant cases.
Credit toward public interest or pro bono hour requirements may be available. Applicants should consult their law schools or universities.
Interested applicants should email a resume, short statement of interest, and a writing sample to Nunberg@meforum.org.
Join Our Pro Bono Team
In addition to its policy and educational work, the Legal Project participates at a case level. We arrange for low cost or pro bono legal representation for authors and activists targeted with predatory suits by Islamists bent on silencing them. This legal aid helps neutralize predatory suits that rely for their success on victims lacking the resources to defend themselves. Our client list includes journalists, bloggers, authors and politicians, and continues to grow.
To provide this vital legal aid, the Legal Project maintains a "pro-bono list" of attorneys interested in aiding victims of predatory suits. Available projects range from large to small (e.g., handling an entire defamation case, quashing an overbroad subpoena.) As some of our clients are international, foreign attorneys are encouraged to sign up as well.
If you are interested in adding your name to the "pro bono" list please email Nunberg@meforum.org with your name, affiliation, area of expertise, and if there is a particular type of work you in which you would be interested in being involved.
