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.  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.  

Hitting the Road: Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Driver -An educational program
for Nevada's teens, designed to make them better prepared drivers.

Future Programs:

Elder Outreach, Educational Outreach, Rural Outreach, Community Resource Center

“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.”
