The Minnesota Association for Justice (MAJ) is a legal organization for civil trial attorneys dedicated to protecting equal justice for all in courtrooms throughout Minnesota. The organization began informally in 1954. On April 13, 2007, the name of the organization was changed from the Minnesota Trial Lawyers Association to the Minnesota Association for Justice.


Headquartered in Minneapolis, MAJ helps Minnesota personal injury attorneys and other lawyers improve their practice through quality continuing legal education (CLE) seminars, networking opportunities, and annual meetings. The MAJ also provides a voice in the state legislature through its political action committee.

MAJ also operates MN Trial Political Action Committee (PAC). The PAC supports candidates in Minnesota's legislature and constitutional office who protect consumers' legal rights through the executive and legislative process.
