The National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges is a voluntary not-for-profit association of the Bankruptcy Judges of the United States which has several purposes: to provide continuing legal education to judges, lawyers and other involved professionals, to promote cooperation among the Bankruptcy Judges, to secure a greater degree of quality and uniformity in the administration of the Bankruptcy system and to improve the practice of law in the Bankruptcy Courts of the United States. 

As part of its mission, the NCBJ, through various committees, provides public outreach and education  regarding the impact of bankruptcy on the public’s lives and livelihood, the impact of bankruptcy law on non-bankruptcy legal rights and remedies, and the purpose and jurisdiction of the bankruptcy courts.  

In 2011, in connection with its public outreach efforts, the NCBJ , together  with the FJA and FJMA  became involved in  the Civic Education Task Force initiative to provide a web-based  library of resources  for federal judges  to access to teach civics to various sectors of the public.
