Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue

The American Association of Jewish Lawyers & Jurists (AAJLJ) is the voluntary bar association of American Jewish lawyers. We are a national nonprofit association that represents the American Jewish legal community in regard to legal issues that affect, and are of importance to, the community, including; freedom of religion, civil rights, human rights, access to justice, social justice, and defense of the rule of law. The Association also represents and defends the interests of the State of Israel in regard to legal matters such as the BDS movement, and by providing opportunities for American lawyers to better understand the Israeli justice system and the strength of the rule of law in Israel.
