Membership Benefits

Education
NDAJ helps members stay current on the law and advance their practices through ongoing continuing legal education opportunities.  Our programs feature some of the leading plaintiffs’ attorneys throughout the United States, providing you with opportunities to learn from the foremost legal experts in their fields.  CLEs are provided through our mid-winter and annual conventions, special seminar programs and online through SeminarWeb Live.  Members pay a discounted fee for convention programs and other seminars offered by NDAJ. 

Experience
There is no substitute for experience.  One of the most valuable aspects of your membership is immediate access to other NDAJ members—members with extensive experience and special areas of expertise who can help you when you need it.  Through our member listserv, you can get information, share ideas and post questions about cases, strategies, experts and resources.  Whether you need sample pleadings, updates on a particular legal issue or background on the expert witness tendered by the defense counsel in your case, our listserv can get you the information you need and get it to you quickly.

Advocacy
NDAJ is the state’s leading advocate for protecting our civil justice system and the rights of all North Dakotans.  This is done through an active governmental affairs program, amicus support in relevant cases, public education and through our affiliated political action committee.

Governmental Affairs
NDAJ works with elected officials at all levels of government to protect the civil justice system and ensure that all North Dakota consumers, workers and businesses have equal access to our courts.  In addition to work on issues central to the civil justice system, we also work to improve state laws concerning consumer protection and workplace safety.  Members may contact NDAJ for information on regulatory agencies and rule-setting, introduced bills as they move through the legislature, information on elected officials and other resources.  NDAJ also provides trainings to help members work effectively with lawmakers and other public officials on issues central to our common goal—a fair and just legal system that protects the rights of all West Virginians.

Amicus Committee
NDAJ advocates for you and your clients in our courthouses through our Amicus Committee.  Our committee provides amicus support in cases important to our civil justice system and the public.

Public Education
NDAJ works to educate the public about the importance of the civil justice system and their right to trial by jury while also providing critical information about tort reform and the corporate special interests and their front groups who are trying to take those rights away.   NDAJ provides informational materials and other resources to consumers through its website, partner organizations and its members. 

NDAJPAC
NDAJPAC is the affiliated political action committee of the North Dakota Association for Justice.  The PAC Committee reviews legislative candidates, legislation and current concerns of our members.  Contributions to NDAJPAC are used to support candidates and legislation committed to protecting our civil justice system and the rights of all North Dakotans. 

Networking
NDAJ schedules several opportunities throughout the year for its members to network with each other and discuss their cases and the law in a social setting.

Communication
To ensure that members have updated information about important developments in our state and federal courts, state government and in the media as well as on-going information about NDAJ activities, we offer several resources.  You will receive regular informational e-mails, and additional updates are provided on the NDAJ website.  In addition, you will also receive E-Clips, a free weekly e-mail digest of national news articles and opinion pieces of interest to plaintiff lawyers.
