The Pennsylvania Bar Foundation was created in response to the organized bar’s desire to become more involved in public service.
I extend a personal “Thank You” to each and every one of you for your support of the PA Bar Foundation, an organization that empowers our youth, supports pro bono efforts and local bar associations, and shapes the future of our profession.” ~Michael B. Jones, President
