The Minnesota Association for Justice (MAJ) was established in 1954 by a small group of lawyers dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured and accused. The MAJ was created to better represent the overall interests of their clients and their profession as well as to share information, trial strategies and to collectively influence legislation.
The Minnesota Association for Justice is a dynamic, pro-active membership driven organization dedicated to helping our members build their practice, better represent their clients and strengthen our profession. Our lobbyists and public relations staff monitor legislation, develop strategies and effectively represent our position to legislators and policy-makers.
What we do is more important now than ever before because big insurance and large corporations have vast resources to influence the political process leaving few avenues for the average injured person to access justice. When corporations act irresponsibly by delaying or refusing to pay fair and just insurance claims, producing unsafe products, polluting our environment, swindling their employees, consumers and shareholders; or infringe on basic civil rights – the only place where an individual can hold them accountable is in our courts. MAJ is committed to strengthening the civil justice system so that deserving individuals can get justice, and wrongdoers are held accountable. We oppose efforts to weaken basic legal protections that stack the deck against injured consumers.
