Mission Statement

The mission of the Foundation for Criminal Justice is to preserve and promote the core values of America’s justice system guaranteed by the Constitution – among them due process, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, fair sentencing and assistance of effective counsel – by educating the public and the legal profession to the role of these rights and values in a free society. The Foundation supports the work of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers toward these ends.
