Informed Citizens

are Better Citizens

For Attorneys

The New Jersey State Bar Foundation is the philanthropic and charitable arm of the Bar Association.

We provide FREE law-related education to the citizens of New Jersey, from elementary, middle & high school students to senior citizens.

We also provide opportunities for lawyers to serve the public through participation in and support of our programs.


Here’s what we have to offer YOU:

  • Opportunities to give back to your community that draw on your legal experience and knowledge
  • The chance to grow your networks, skills, and heart by serving on the Foundation’s Board of Trustees
  • Ways to enhance your practice with law-related publications for you or your clients
  • The inside scoop on where the educators in your network can find interactive and impactful trainings
  • Social media cred by following, sharing and liking the Foundation’s interesting and highly relevant posts
  • The knowledge that your financial donation will help to foster an increased awareness, appreciation and knowledge of the law and the legal system among New Jersey residents
