The American Association for Justice (AAJ) is one of the nation’s leading legal organizations that focuses on helping lawyers and other legal professionals represent their legal clients to the best of their abilities. Between providing educational opportunities for members, helping law offices embrace new types of technology, fighting for the right to trial by jury, and giving legal professionals the tools to become industry leaders, the AAJ helps ensure the success of today’s lawyers—and tomorrow’s.
As part of the AAJ’s offerings, they have a program called the AAJ Leadership Academy. The Leadership Academy is an initiative of AAJ’s Diversity Committee and gives accepted members the techniques and skills required to make them effective leaders in the legal profession. 14-16 plaintiff trial lawyers representing various backgrounds and practice areas are allowed into the Leadership Academy every year.
