The Kentucky Justice Association (KJA) was founded in 1954. Today, the organization has grown to nearly 1,400 members and evolved into a strong political voice for individual and consumer rights.
The KJA seeks to improve the legal profession by educating Kentucky personal injury lawyers and other attorneys as a professional organization. It also performs advocacy by lobbying the Legislature for access to justice and consumer rights, and against so-called "tort reform" efforts that limit the right to a jury. The KJA also has a political arm that may make campaign expenditures for and against candidates.
The KJA is committed to educating consumers about their rights and training trial lawyers through quality continuing legal education (CLE) seminars.
The benefits of joining the Kentucky Justice Association (KJA) include:
Six times a year, the KJA publishes a magazine that is sent out to 1,500 readers in the State of Kentucky. The Advocate contains articles on timely topics facing trial lawyers throughout the state.
The Kentucky Justice Association has special sections, including:
Members of these sections enjoy a special listserv for each section as well as special recognition on the KJA Membership Director and Desk Reference, which can lead to referrals from other attorneys in the organization and members of the public.
Lawyer Legion maintains a statewide directory of personal injury lawyers in Kentucky which includes both KJA members and non-members. To help the public find the best choices when searching for a personal injury attorney, Lawyer Legion recognizes attorneys for their involvement and leadership within the KJA and other professional associations. This includes recognition for KJA past presidents and KJA members who have updated their Lawyer Legion profile to include information about their involvement with the KJA.
