AAJ Champions and Diplomates | The American Association For Justice

AAJ Champions and Diplomates

AAJ members who have achieved Champion or Diplomate status within AAJ's Masters of Trial Law program have accomplished this feat through continued education through AAJ. The goal of the programs is to build and develop professional knowledge through a continuing commitment to improving practical knowledge of trial skills and substantive law. Active participation in the program provides recognition for dedication, commitment, and enthusiasm to pursuing legal education. 

Masters of Trial Law participants are awarded the distinction of Fellow, Diplomate, or Champion depending on the number of hours of continuing legal education completed. AAJ Diplomates have attended over 400 hours of qualifying AAJ Education programs—including AAJ Education's Ultimate Trial Advocacy Course: Art of Persuasion. AAJ Champions completed a rigorous curriculum that encompasses the skills and experience deemed by The National College of Advocacy and AAJ to be essential to a well-rounded legal training and a successful trial practice. The following AAJ members have shown their commitment to continuing legal education and AAJ Education. For more information on becoming an AAJ Champion or Diplomate, visit the Professional Recognition Page.

Congratulations to the 2019 Inductees to Champion and Diplomate Status
