Educate. Inform. Inspire.

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 American Museum of Tort Law strongly believes that cy pres awards are an invaluable way to honor and advance the interests of class members when complete dispersal of the award or settlement is not feasible. Through cy pres awards, the plaintiffs can provide a collective, continuous service to the public interest. More information about cy pres awards.
