About the Jaworski Public Programs

Since 2001, the American Bar Association Division for Public Education has conducted the Leon Jaworski public program series to commemorate Law Day. The Jaworski public programs examine themes of law, politics, and culture and operate with a goal to help us better understand who we are as Americans and as global citizens.

About Leon Jaworski 

As president of the ABA in 1971, Leon Jaworski established the special committee that was the genesis of the Association’s Division for Public Education. In 1983, a bequest from his estate generously established the Leon Jaworski Fund for Public Education, which continues to support programs that further public understanding of law.
