Law Fair Program
Today it is more important than ever to ensure Americans have the knowledge and skills to participate in civic life.
Over the last year, the New Jersey State Bar Foundation has been working hard to create informed and engaged citizens.
We are proud of the thousands of lives we have touched through our law-related and violence prevention programming. And it’s all thanks to people like you.
Don’t Miss These Civics Publications
The NJSBF has many civics-related publications available for download or in print. Don’t miss out on two of its most popular publications, including the newest titled Beyond the Bill of Rights which explains constitutional amendments 11 through 27. Focusing on the 17 amendments added to the U.S. Constitution after the Bill of Rights was passed in 1791, the 24-page newsletter also contains a bonus article on the the Constitutional Convention.
If it’s the Bill of Rights you’re interested in, we’ve got you covered there as well with the Bill of Rights Bulletin.
Hard copies of both publications are available and can be ordered using the Publication Order Form.
