Our History

Beginning with nine plaintiffs attorneys engaged in worker's compensation litigation in 1946, AAJ has expanded to become the world's largest trial bar. Today, AAJ is a broad-based, international coalition of attorneys, law professors, paralegals, and law students ensuring every person's right to trial by jury.
