Tulsa County Bar Foundation Year in Review
The Tulsa County Bar Foundation, through its educational and charitable efforts, is continuing to expand our role of keeping the legal system accessible. By providing seminars on topics of concern to public, the Foundation not only informs citizens concerning their rights, but also educates on the role of the judicial system an the use of alternative forms of the judicial system and the use of alternative forms of dispute resolution as a means to settle and resolve their disputes. The Foundation also sponsors and promotes the annual Law Week, its most visible public event. Activities include a law fair, court tours, mock trials, school poster contest, and speakers for school and civic groups. The Ask-A-Lawyer and Lawyer in the Library programs allows the public access to a lawyer for answers to legal questions without legal expense.
Through charitable donations to organizations such as Legal Services of Eastern Oklahoma and the TU Law Clinic, the Foundation fills a critical need in the community in assuring that those individuals in need of legal assistance have a place to turn regardless of financial ability.
