Continuing Legal Education
AAJ’s education programs are more than CLE. We offer cutting-edge legal training taught by the best trial lawyers in the country. Engage with litigation leaders at seminars, practice advanced trial advocacy techniques at colleges, and test your case with pre-screened focus groups.
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.
Share your knowledge
Interested in contributing your words of wisdom to a particular legal topic or trial skill? AAJ is always looking for new speakers for the many Education programs it holds throughout the year.
