The Flanders Legal Center for Freedom, which is led by Robert Flanders, a board member of the Center, a practicing attorney, and former Associate Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court.
Operating under the auspices of the Center, the nonpartisan Flanders Legal Center expects to provide ongoing legal commentary, submit friend of the court briefs, and potentially engage in select litigation cases.
It is our objective to build our internal legal capacity, while at the same time working with in-state and out-of-state public litigation firms to identify and bring appropriate cases in either the state or federal court system.
