    So please join us as a Friend of the Museum with your help we can fight to protect a right so important to the country’s founders, and our democracy; to the legions of wrongfully injured, and to the health, safety, and welfare of us all. Because Tort Law does save lives.

    We will be announcing the formation of the 2018 Friends of the American Museum of Tort Law by December 11th. We would be delighted to have your response before then.
