LCJ is incorporated in the District of Columbia as a non-profit organization with a 501(c) (6) status as recognized by the IRS. The leadership of the organized defense bar formed LCJ in 1987 with the financial support of several “Fortune 500” companies. The purpose of the organization was to develop a network of broad, national support for ongoing legal reform initiatives. By tapping into the resources of the defense bar organizations, and the more than 20,000 legal practitioners that they represent, LCJ provides crucial support for ongoing legislative and procedural rules initiatives.
