The Michigan Association for Justice (MAJ) was formally known as the Michigan Trial Lawyers Association (MTLA). The MAJ is a non-profit membership association dedicated to furthering civil justice and the rights of those wrongfully injured.
Members include more than 1,600 plaintiff's attorneys and their staff. With offices in Lansing, Michigan, the MAJ is an affiliated member of the American Association for Justice.
MAJ provides members with professional networking, online listserves, and a data bank of relevant court documents and legal experts. The MAJ website also includes a public member directory that helps the public find a qualified personal injury attorney in Michigan.
The organization also provides an extensive continuing legal education (CLE) program in locations throughout the state. The MAJ provides some of the best continuing legal education seminars in the state.
Additionally, MAJ's Lansing-based government affairs staff lobbies legislators and state agencies to advance a pro-civil justice legislative agenda, intended to preserve and enhance the rights of injured people.
MAJ states that it "promotes justice and fairness for injured persons, safeguards victims' rights--particularly the right to trial by jury--and strengthens the civil justice system through education and disclosure of information critical to public health and safety."
