Landmark Legal Foundation is America's oldest conservative, non-profit, public interest law firm. Every day since we opened our doors in 1976, we have fought to restore and preserve the legacy the Founders of our Republic bequeathed to all of us more than 240 years ago. Landmark has an unparalleled reputation as an authority on the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. Landmark has entered our fifth decade working for all Americans to preserve-and apply anew-the constitutional principles on which America was founded and which are the origin of our Nation's enduring greatness. Landmark charges no fees and accepts no government funding for its services.
