Montana’s constitution explicitly prohibits aid to religious schools. However, the 2015 Montana legislature passed a bill that allowed tax credits for families who send their children to religious schools. The case made its way to the Montana Supreme Court.
The Legal Program handles cases that involve infringements upon constitutional rights and civil liberties. We represent individuals or classes of individuals whose cases will either serve to create new precedent or will result in general system-wide reform in favor of protecting and defending civil liberties.
In other situations, we may not file a lawsuit, but may write letters calling for changes or reforms.
