60 Years of Service to the Bench, Bar and Citizens of Connecticut
Since 1952, the Connecticut Bar Foundation has worked in partnership with judges, attorneys, and law schools to promote understanding and improvement of the law, legal institutions, and the legal profession. An integral part of the state’s legal community, the Foundation administers programs that benefit legal services agencies to provide access to justice for all people in Connecticut.
Roraback Circle member donations provide an extra level of support crucial for the Foundation to continue its programs at a high level. The Circle is named in honor of the late Catherine Roraback because her entire career exemplified what it means for an attorney to uphold the Rule of Law and the administration of justice.
