The mission of the Citizens Forum is to provide a vehicle for two-way communication between Florida’s major constituencies and The Florida Bar, to inform and educate the public about significant legal-justice issues and to gain public understanding and support. The Forum functions in an advisory capacity to the Bar’s Board of Governors, divisions, sections, committees and staff – offering recommendations, suggestions and opinions relating to existing or prospective Bar programs and activities.
