Nevada Foundation for Consumer Education (NFCE)

The idea began in 1990 when NJA’s Executive Director and Board of Governors wanted to find a way to establish a foundation that would facilitate the education of Nevadans regarding their constitutional, legal and consumer rights.  The dream was realized in 1998, when the Nevada Justice Association formed the Nevada Foundation for Consumer Education (NFCE).  A non-profit, charitable foundation (501 (c)3), NFCE is charged with promoting, educating, informing and disseminating information regarding topics of legal importance to Nevada citizens.  With the knowledge gained from these public forums, we all have the opportunity to become better citizens and more responsible members of the Silver State.   

NFCE Programs 

The People’s Law School—A community-based televised lecture series specifically designed to familiarize and educate citizens on legal issues. 

The Speakers’ Bureau—The free presentation by guest speakers from the legal profession to an array of civic groups, organizations and associations.

NFCE Mission Statement

“The Nevada Foundation for Consumer Education is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and  educational purposes.  The educational focus will be to inform the public of their rights as citizens of Nevada and other issues of importance.  To accomplish this, the foundation will hold ‘People’s Law Schools’ or seminars which are open to the public.  This foundation is supported by voluntary contributions, grants and endowments.”
