New Jersey State Bar Foundation

NJ State Bar Foundation

Founded in 1958, The New Jersey State Bar Foundation is the charitable and educational Foundation of the New Jersey State Bar Association.

The Foundation's mission is to:

  • Foster an increased awareness, appreciation and knowledge of law and the legal system among New Jersey residents.
  • Serve as the statewide resource for law-related education for the public.
  • Provide opportunities for lawyers to serve the public through the Foundation's programs.
  • Foster professionalism and pride in the profession of law through public service.

The Foundation does this by offering a free, comprehensive public education program. Among their many public and school-based activities, they present law-related seminars, conduct conflict resolution training, publish law-related materials, operate a video loan library and speakers' bureau, and coordinate elementary, middle and high school mock trial competitions. Explore their site and see how they serve the Public, Educators & Students, and Attorneys.

The Foundation is based at The New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick, where many of our events take place.
