Dedicated To Educating The Public About New Jersey Law


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


Our 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.

We do this by offering a free, comprehensive public education program. Among our many public and school-based activities, we 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 our site and see how we 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.
