Civics Education Resources

Welcome to the FBA’s civics page where judges and lawyers can find great ideas for civics programs for children of all ages.

Report on the FBA’s National Civics Initiative

In an effort to bolster civil discourse and good decision-making in the next generation of jurors and engaged citizens, federal judges – with the help of FBA chapters – are hosting high school and college students in their courtrooms to observe, learn, and practice legal skills as critical, life skills.

VIDEO: Moments In History: Remembering Thurgood Marshall

Few people know the legal mind of justices or judges as well as the law clerks who have worked with them. Justice Thurgood Marshall’s former law clerks offer unique insights into the character, values, and thought processes of the first African American to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States. In this 8.5-minute video, prominent lawyers reminisce about the examples of compassion and courage they saw in the life and work of this legal legend. The Office of Public Affairs at the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts produced Moments in History: Remembering Thurgood Marshall which is available now on YouTube. We invite you to link to the video and make it available on your website. Request: Please contact Rebecca Fanning if you post or link to the video. Feel free to reach her at or 202-502-2611.
