Legacy of Liberty

Foundation supports a legacy of Law-Related Education

The Nebraska State Bar Foundation’s outreach and giving program directed exclusively at Law-Related Education (LRE) is its Legacy of Liberty program, which was established in 2003.

The Bar Foundation annually hosts its Legacy of Liberty Breakfast at the Nebraska State Bar Association's Annual Meeting. This complimentary breakfast is an opportunity for the Bar Foundation to share the accomplishments of its LRE programs and Bench Media projects with Nebraska lawyers.

The annual breakfast takes place at the beginning of the Judge Lyle Strom High School Mock Trial Program regional competition. Students participating on a Mock Trial team often attend.

The presentations and program include updates and information celebrating the work of the Foundation. Take a look at Legacy of Liberty 2018.

To recognize gifts at the Pillars of Justice Society Level, the Nebraska State Bar Foundation has established the Legacy of Liberty Gallery on the first floor of the Roman L. Hruska Law Center in Lincoln. A gift of $100,000 or more qualifies a donor to be recognized with an individual bronze plaque displayed in the gallery.
