Court Night Program
“Court Night” is an informational program about New Jersey’s court system cosponsored by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation and the county and specialty bar associations in New Jersey. The purpose of the program is to open the courts to the public in order to explain how our judicial system works in an effort to demystify, educate and welcome. Events are planned around Law Day USA, held yearly on May 1st.
Since 1991, over 300 Court Night programs have been held across the state. Each year, county and specialty bar associations are invited to submit Court Night applications. A committee of volunteers evaluate the projects and available funds are distributed.
