The source of the IOLTA Fund's resources are interest on lawyers' trust fund accounts, and similar funds are present in almost every jurisdiction in the United States. The New Jersey State Bar Foundation receives a share of IOLTA's revenue to carry out its mission of promoting public understanding about the law.
