AAI’s amicus program is an important component of its advocacy work. The purpose of AAI’s amicus program is to positively influence the development of competition law in the courts and to advance the interests of consumers. As a general rule, we focus on legal issues that may have widespread impact and we seek to provide the courts with a unique perspective, focus, or analysis beyond that provided by the parties in a case. We are appreciative of the many significant voluntary contributions made by members of the Advisory Board and others in producing top-quality legal briefs. Operational Guidelines for the AAI's Amicus Program are available here.
