2019 Auto Torts-Advanced Trial Lawyer college: December 6 & 7, 2019

Often described as "the best seminar in the region, if not the country," the SCAJ Auto Torts seminar is enjoyed each December in Atlanta, GA by Trial Lawyers from across the south. While the seminar used to focus purely on Auto Torts, throughout the years the seminar has shifted to include topics that are relevant to all Trial Lawyers. The seminar offers members a chance to earn nine CLE credits and experience the best holiday shopping, entertainment and food Atlanta has to offer.

The South Carolina Association for Justice (SCAJ) was founded over 50 years ago by a small group of trial lawyers. Since then, our mission has been to serve our members and those we are sworn to protect.  We work to uphold and defend the constitutions of our state and nation. We fight tirelessly to protect the rights of the individual; to seek justice through open and fair courtrooms; to resist unjust laws; to support policies that hold wrongdoers accountable; to strengthen the civil justice system through education; and to uphold the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity in the legal profession.
