Publications

The Foundation offers nearly 30 publications to educators and the public. Some of those publications are available in print and some are only available for download (in PDF format). In addition, some publications are available in alternate formats, including Spanish, Braille and CD.

Plus, the Foundation also produces two subscription-based publications—The Legal Eagle, a legal newspaper for kids (for grades 5 and up) and Respect, our tolerance and diversity newsletter (for grades 6 and up). Both of these publications are published three times a year.

You can use the Publication Order Form to submit a subscription for The Legal Eagle and Respect, as well as order print copies of available publications.

For an overview of our publications, check out the Keeping Citizens Informed video below.
