Build your network

Classroom learning is only part of the winning equation. Our programs offer the opportunity to build a national network of like-minded trial lawyers. The majority of AAJ Education's programs are open only to AAJ members and provide a secure, confidential environment.

Learn by doing

AAJ Education is dedicated to enhancing the practice of plaintiff law, one trial lawyer at a time. Our trial skills colleges give you the opportunity to practice advanced techniques in a constructive learning environment.

A year’s worth of CLE credits

AAJ provides two opportunities—the Annual and Winter Conventions—to gain a national perspective on trial advocacy and enhance your legal knowledge on substantive topics. At both conventions, there is the potential to earn up to a year's worth of CLE, including ethics credits, in just four days.

Learn without leaving your desk

When your schedule doesn't allow time to travel to a college or seminar, take advantage of webinars on emerging topics in litigation or view our recorded seminars and convention programs in high-quality audio and video.
