EDUCATE. INFORM. INSPIRE

Make a Difference Today.

You can help the American Museum of Tort Law educate our citizens about two of the most important pillars of our way of life: Trial by Jury, and Tort Law, the law of wrongful injuries. The right to trial by jury is so important that it is enshrined in our Constitution, in the Seventh amendment in the Bill of Rights. Because of tort law, life is better for all of us – cars, consumer products, food, medicines, and the environment are all protected and improved by tort law. But too many people don’t know how the law works, or appreciate how it benefits us, which is one reason why the attacks on our system of civil justice continue. Educating our citizens about tort law and its many benefits, is key to protecting and strengthening our system of law.

Your tax-deductible gift will be put to immediate use in support of our educational efforts, from field trips for high school students, to tours for senior citizens; to funding and creating traveling exhibits. We are working on three programs, and your contributions will support every aspect of our work:

The Educational Outreach Program, working to bring students to the Museum, and integrate learning about trial by jury and tort law in their curriculum;

Our Traveling Exhibit Project, to let us develop exhibits that will travel to cities and people around the country;

Our Expansion Project, to expand the Museum here at home, including the “Grand Courtroom:” a full sized, fully-wired space that will be used a public forum for “trials” of unresolved issues such as autonomous cars, nanotechnology, robotics, etc., as well as for re-enactments, mock trials, moot courts, and tours by students and other citizens. The expanded museum will also include additional exhibit space, storage for archives, and research facilities for visiting scholars.

Your donations are 100% tax deductible.

Our system of law is worth preserving. Help us educate our fellow citizens about how the law works. Thank you for your support!
