Breakdown for Additional FJE-funded Programs

Through the support of the American Bar Endowment, the ABA Fund for Justice and Education helps to serve as the link between the ABA's commitment to public service and its ability to produce programs that improve the lives of those we are entrusted to serve. These programs are divided among five main areas of concentration:

  1. Access to Justice;
  2. Children & Family Rights;
  3. Public Education;
  4. Professionalism and the Legal Profession; and
  5. International Justice

Below are a few examples of each of these five main programmatic areas supported annually through the American Bar Endowment grant.
