The Collaborating Attorney Network (CAN) is a group of volunteer attorneys who have agreed to work with our staff on a pro bono basis. They range from attorneys at large firms to solo practitioners. Each member of the network has experience or expertise in different areas related to CDT’s work, such as free expression, privacy, or surveillance.
Members of the CAN help represent CDT in litigation matters, including amicus briefs. Additionally, members of the CAN help CDT draft administrative comments at the state or federal level, analyze proposed legislation, or update legal guides or other resources.
If you are interested in joining the network, please let us know by sending an email to [email protected] with the following information:
- Organizational affiliation
- Year admitted to practice
- Practice focus
- Active court admissions
- CDT areas of interest
Being in the CAN means that we may contact you from time to time to ask if you are interested in providing pro bono legal services for CDT, but it does not obligate you in advance to assist with any matter. We also may reach out to provide you with updates on CDT’s work and the work being done by members of the network.
Some examples of CDT legal interventions include:
