Our Mission: Increasing Access to Justice

The Indiana Bar Foundation is a charitable foundation dedicated to strengthening access to justice and appreciation for the rule of law in Indiana.


To accomplish our mission we gather and direct resources toward three main areas: assisting people who have difficulty accessing the justice system, providing civic education for Hoosiers of all ages, and improving Indiana's Judicial System and the legal profession.
