About Becket Fund
The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is a Washington, D.C.-based public interest law firm protecting the free expression of all religious traditions through litigation, media outreach and scholarship. Since 1994, Chairman and President Kevin J. Hasson and The Becket Fund have successfully represented clients from nearly every faith tradition, earning the praise of leaders from Pope John Paul II to Elie Wiesel. As both primary counsel and amicus curiae, in federal and state trial and appellate courts, The Becket Fund has developed expertise in all areas of religious freedom law, but especially under the Free Speech, Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It has been a steadfast advocate for laws that protect the conscience rights of individuals and institutions.
