About Pennsylvania Association for Justice
The Pennsylvania Association for Justice endeavors to promote a fair and effective justice system by providing support to those attorneys who work to ensure that others can obtain justice in Pennsylvania's courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests. The Association assists trial attorneys in Pennsylvania by:
- Providing online and offline platforms where members can share information on legal and practice developments;
- Organizing online and live Continuing Legal Educational seminars on all aspects of trial practice;
- Publishing legal manuals and texts on critical areas of law of interest to PAJ Members; &
- Advocating for the integrity of a robust civil justice system in Pennsylvania.
The aim of these activities is to help trial attorneys better represent their wronged clients. The Association has resisted measures that, in other states, have closed courthouse doors to those who rely on courtrooms as the last resort to obtain justice. The Association also fosters public awareness of the role of the trial attorney in the administration of justice and to protect every citizen's 7th Amendment right to trial by jury.
