The mission of the American Association for Justice, formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA®), is to promote a fair and effective justice system and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests. AAJ is the world’s largest trial bar, providing trial attorneys with information, professional support and a nationwide network that enables them to most effectively and expertly represent clients.

Our members are trial attorneys who are committed to promoting safety and corporate accountability, advocating for a balanced civil justice system, improving our communities and educating lawyers to provide excellent advocacy for their clients.

The American Association for Justice (AAJ) is committed to advocating for the civil justice system, whether that means taking on powerful corporate interests, opposing unconstitutional attacks on the civil justice system or fighting harmful legislation that limits Americans’ access to the courts. We are committed to strengthening the civil justice system to ensure deserving individuals can get justice and wrongdoers are held accountable.

We oppose efforts to weaken basic legal protections and further stack the deck against Americans. All Americans benefit when individuals have a fair chance to get justice through our civil justice system. AAJ’s commitment to justice ensures that every person is on a level playing field in the courtroom and able to hold wrongdoers accountable.
