About the ABOTA Foundation



Our Vision

The ABOTA Foundation envisions equal justice for all in a vibrant and civil democracy.

Our Mission

The mission of the Foundation of ABOTA is to promote and improve the American civil justice system and to preserve the Seventh Amendment right to civil jury trials for future generations.

To achieve the mission, the Trustees of the Foundation will dedicate themselves to accomplish the following:

  1. Promote public appreciation and respect for the civil justice system and its role in upholding our societal values in democracy.
  2. Elevate the importance and understanding, among our country’s youth, of the Seventh Amendment to our democracy and civil justice system.
  3. Equip and inspire lawyers and law students to serve as ethical, civil and skilled advocates for the Seventh Amendment and our civil justice system.
