Why the new website?
AAJ values its members and their hard work to ensure justice for their clients. We redesigned www.justice.org for the modern web so that all users - AAJ members and the public - can find the information they need quickly. We've incorporated a responsive design for mobile use, streamlined the navigation, increased interactivity, and added a robust search tool. AAJ members' feedback helped make this redesign possible as many of the changes were suggested by members through website surveys.
Why is there a public and member-only version of the website?
In order to inform the public about the vital work AAJ members undertake daily, we created a new public-facing site to showcase our members' efforts in the fight for justice and accountability. We also created member-only areas to help ensure that all AAJ resources are right at members' fingertips – organized in easy to find locations.

Are dues paid to AAJ tax deductible?
Dues paid to the American Association For Justice (AAJ) are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for income tax purposes. However, dues may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business dues and expenses subject to restrictions imposed as a result of AAJ's lobbying activities. AAJ estimates that the portion of dues and other similar amounts that it expects to receive that are allocable to AAJ's lobbying expenditures is 24 percent. Accordingly, currently. 76 percent of your dues and contributions to AAJ may be deducted as ordinary and necessary business expenses. Please consult your tax advisor to confirm. Voluntary supporting contributions are tax deductible as a charitable contribution. These contributions support education programs and activities to preserve and promote the civil justice system and to protect the consumer.
