The Legal Action Program is overseen and administered by the Legal Action Committee, which receives and evaluates requests for financial assistance and NAR’s amicus participation in litigation of potential significance to NAR, state and local associations, the real estate profession, or private property rights. Financial assistance is available to litigants to pay for legal fees, costs, and expenses. The Amicus Brief Advisory Board, a subcommittee of the Legal Action Committee, receives and evaluates requests for NAR’s participation as amicus in filing “friend of the court” briefs to share information and expertise on the legal issues involved in significant litigation to the real estate industry. Cases supported must clearly evidence the potential to have a national impact on real estate-related issues, and support will not typically be awarded where the impact of the litigation is limited to the parties of the case.
