The Federal Bar Association's national outreach efforts educate students about our court systems.

The Federal Bar Association created its national civics outreach program to help educate students about our court systems. Judges and attorneys visit classrooms and talk with students, and students have the opportunity to visit courthouses to observe proceedings and meet with lawyers and judges.

Joining us to discuss the importance of more civics education programsin schools is United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Ohio and National President of the Federal Bar Association, the Hon. Michael J. Newman.
