Reaching Out and Making a
Difference in Our Community

The Fairfax Law Foundation provides educational opportunities to learn about the local judicial system.  The Court Tour Program invites students to have a better understanding of their local court system. 


Established by the Fairfax Bar Association in 1982, the Fairfax Bar's charitable Foundation supports local programs to improve the community's access to justice and promote education regarding the legal system. The Foundation offers programs that allows members of the FBA to give back and make a difference in our community. 

Our programs are wide ranging from making a difference in the life of school students to ensuring everyone, no matter what economic background, has an equal access to justice.  The Fairfax Law Foundation is making a real difference in the Northern Virginia region.

The Legal Community Making a Difference

The support from law firms, individual attorneys, families of attorneys and other legal professionals enables the Foundation to successfully sustain service to our community. Through continued donations of volunteer time, financial support, or a combination of both, we will continue to enhance the legal profession in our own neighborhood.

Businesses and Corporations Making a Difference

The Fairfax Law Foundation needs the support of area businesses to reach those who ask for our help. Your business can contribute to the Foundation directly or to a special event through sponsorship, or another in-kind donation. For questions about sponsorship packages, contact Courtnie Norris at 703-246-2732 or

Supporting the Foundation's Fundraising Campaign

You can contribute to the Foundation several ways - the First Hour Campaign, the Society of Fellows, and the Dues Check-Off Campaign. These are important initiatives that enable the Foundation to continue the many works to the citizen of Fairfax County. 

Getting Involved: Volunteers Needed

The Fairfax Law Foundation is seeking several attorney volunteers for the following programs:


Model Judiciary Program
The annual Model Judiciary Program, in association with the FBA and the Honorable Judge Stanley P. Klein, needs attorney-mentors to teach Fairfax County high school students how to try a case.  Fact patterns and roles for student witnesses are provided.  No legal research will be necessary. No trial experience is required - just your insights, your passion, and a little bit of time after school between mid-November and mid-January of 2013.  You'll be surprised how rewarding it is to see your student team in action. Win or lose, you and your team will enjoy a terrific civics lesson for all involved.  For more information, please contact the Program's Chair coordinator, Yama Shansab, of Walton & Adams, P.C., at

Devonshire Program

Volunteer attorneys are needed for a one-hour session that is designed to reach out to juveniles who are in trouble with the law.  Click here for more information and session dates.
