Sponsored by the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association
The Federal Bar Association is proud to host the National Community Outreach Project, an initiative for FBA chapters to work with their local courts in order to make an impact within communities across the nation. During the inaugural National Community Outreach Project in 2016, the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association provided funding for participating chapters and sections to conduct community outreach programs with the local federal courts.
Events included “schoolhouse to courthouse” events for 7th and 8th graders to observe courtroom proceedings; high school mock trials and live criminal hearings on a Magistrate Duty Calendar; tours of various agencies, including U.S. Probation, the U.S. Marshal Service, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and the Office of the Federal Defender; and programs enabling citizens with legal questions or problems to seek free advice from an attorney.
Please keep checking back for more information on the next National Community Outreach Project, occurring in April 2017.
