Teachers are the key to preserving the health of our democracy. They educate the next generation about the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The ABOTA Foundation has created opportunities for teachers and students to grow their knowledge of the Constitution, judicial system and other anchors in civics education.
The ABOTA Foundation hosts Masters in Trial programs throughout the country to help increase the advocacy skills of trial lawyers. Through work with chapters and cooperating organizations, the ABOTA Foundation educates lawyers of all experience levels to make them more effective advocates.
One of the primary tenets of ABOTA is a responsibility for elevating the standards of integrity, honor, ethics, civility and courtesy in the legal profession. Through our Civility Matters program we strive to promote the importance of professional and civil behavior in the practice of law.
ABOTA defends federal district court judge against unfair attacks by a presidential candidate
The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) is an organization dedicated to the preservation of a fair and impartial judiciary and the right to trial by jury. Recently, we have seen highly publicized attacks by a presidential candidate about a Federal District Court Judge. ABOTA views these attacks on the federal judge to be a threat to the independence of the judiciary, which in turn is a threat to the rule of law. An independent, fair and impartial judiciary is the bulwark against the whims, wishes and demands of the government and other special interests.
