The Federal Bar Association’s (FBA) National Community Outreach Project will work to reach out to young people and their communities for the fourth year in a row to instill confidence in the judicial system. Middle and high school students will visit courthouses, meet lawyers, observe court proceedings, and have conversations directly with federal judges.
More than twenty-five chapters and sections of the Federal Bar Association in multiple districts across the country have agreed to participate in 2019. The FBA has also designed every April as “National Community Outreach” month.
In the related press release, the FBA stated: “In these times when communities, especially youth, have lost confidence in our judicial system, the FBA’s National Community Outreach Project seeks to instill confidence in the judicial system in middle and high-school students and other communities.”
The Federal Bar Association serves communities in other ways, as well, with events like tours of the federal courts, viewings of federal court proceedings, tours of federal agencies, and by providing citizens with free legal advice.
