The Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest (ACLPI) is a private, non-profit, public interest law firm dedicated to representing the people of Arizona on issues that affect us all, including clean air and water, access to education and school finance reform, open government, health care, consumer rights, campaign finance reform, and the protection of our public lands and natural resources. Since 1974, the Center has fought for individuals and groups who lack the power or money to take on big business and big government.
Center staff attorneys litigate and advocate before administrative agencies, legislative bodies and the courts at no charge to our clients. A volunteer Board of Directors approves litigation and assists with strategic planning and fundraising. The Center maintains offices in Phoenix and Tucson. The Center funds its work through contributions from individuals, law firms, foundations and other organizations. Private donations, large and small, have allowed the Center to be an independent public advocate and watchdog for over 30 years.
We currently have three staff attorneys and are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
