Legal Intake Form
Please fill out this form as completely as possible. If we need information in addition to what is on this form, we will contact you. We will respond as quickly as possible.
However, please be aware that due to the number of requests for assistance we receive, we are able to accept only a small percentage of cases. You must understand that unless and until the ACLU agrees to take your case, you are solely responsible for any and all statutes of limitations or other deadlines which might apply to your specific situation. If you have concerns about statutes of limitations or if you feel your case demands immediate attention, you may wish to seek advice from an attorney.
The ACLU-CT generally files cases that affect the civil liberties of large numbers of people, rather than those involving a dispute between two parties. The basic criteria are:
Does this case raise significant civil liberties or civil rights issues?
What effect will this case have on people other than the parties involved?
What is the potential impact of the case?
