In the Courts

Legal Affairs and Amicus Curiae Program 

AAJ’s Legal Affairs and Amicus Curiae Program is a critical part of furthering AAJ’s mission to support plaintiff 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. 

AAJ is committed to protecting the civil justice system by mounting challenges to the constitutionality of laws that restrict access to justice and the availability of a full remedy to those who have been injured; by engaging in advocacy relating to court rules on discovery, evidence and procedure; by participating in the development of law in judicial decisions through amicus briefs; and by defending pro-consumer regulations when challenged in the courts by corporate interests.

AAJ’s Amicus Curiae Program presents the position of the plaintiffs’ bar directly to the courts through amicus briefs filed in state supreme courts, federal appellate courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court. To learn more about the Legal Affairs and Amicus Curiae Program, including how to request a brief, contact AAJ’s General Counsel Anji Jesseramsing at anji.jesseramsing@justice.org.
