About Us

Our Mission

The Great Lakes Legal Foundation is a non-profit legal foundation providing legal and policy expertise to advance economic growth and increase job opportunities in the upper Midwest.

Our lawyers and staff are dedicated to assuring the Great Lakes states remain a competitive manufacturing region. To do so, we need balanced environmental, energy, and civil litigation polices. Such policies will, in turn, benefit all our businesses and citizens through increased economic opportunities.

The Foundation is committed to filling the informational gap that exists between state agencies and the general, regulated public. To this end, follow the Foundation on Twitter (@TheGLLF) and check out our blog timely updates and analyses of federal and Wisconsin regulatory programs.

The Foundation has an active Judicial and Appellate program that monitors Wisconsin Court of Appeals and Supreme Court decisions, participates as an amici in relevant cases, and evaluates Wisconsin’s Supreme Court Justices.

Funding For GLLF

The Great Lakes Legal Foundation is a tax exempt, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. Donations of cash, property, and securities are tax deductible.

All of the Foundation’s funding comes from donations from like-minded individuals, organizations, and foundations. The Foundation does not collect attorney fees or accept money from the government.
