Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education

The State Bar of Arizona created the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education in 1978, with the mission of promoting access to justice for all Arizonans. The Foundation strives to fulfill this mission by preparing Arizona youth for civic responsibility and providing access to legal services for all Arizonans. A few of the Foundation’s programs that foster youth civic engagement and competency include Kids Voting AZ, Project Citizen and We the People: The Citizen & the Constitution, Mock Trial, Connecting with Classrooms (judges & attorneys visit the classroom with prepared learning activities),, and I-Civic-It. Another resource for educators is the Law Related Education K-12 Library with hundreds of books, DVDs, and activities available free for use by any educator. Additionally, through the provision of technical and financial assistance to probation and resource officers; teachers and administrators; private attorneys and judges, and legal service attorneys and advocates, the Foundation works to provide knowledge and access to the justice systems for all Arizonans.
