Formed in 1957 as the South Carolina Plaintiff’s Attorney Association, the South Carolina Association for Justice (SCAJ) supports those lawyers of South Carolina’s legal community that devote the majority of their practices to litigating civil cases on behalf of plaintiffs. As the SCAJ is primarily for plaintiffs’ attorneys, regular membership is reserved for South Carolina lawyers that predominantly represent plaintiffs or criminal defendants or that are regularly involved in family court litigation. However, several other types of people may join as lesser members, including civil defense attorneys, law students, and legal staff that work for regular South Carolina Association for Justice members.
The SCAJ offer support to its members in many different forms. Lawyers belonging to the South Carolina Association for Justice are often able to easily find the proper legal forms or court documents that they need in the SCAJ’s online form database without wasting time trying to locate it elsewhere on the internet. Each year, members of the South Carolina Association for Justice attend several continuing legal education seminars in one location at the SCAJ’s annual convention.
Another aspect of the South Carolina Association for Justice’s work is its effort to benefit the residents of South Carolina. The SCAJ publishes a number of pamphlets on various safety topics, such as toy safety and school time safety, which are distributed to families all across the state. Members of the South Carolina Association for Justice are also able to give back to the community by volunteering for the Peoples Law School program in South Carolina, which was created by the SCAJ to educate the general public on topics that people frequently encounter.
