Our motto is simple: “Advocates for Fairness Under the Law.”
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.
Over the years, SCAJ has grown into a statewide organization with over 1,200 members but the organization still holds the values of the original founders. We serve as a valuable resource to our members, promoting connections, providing education, presenting value and preserving justice.
Our mission is to serve our members and those they are sworn to protect. We are advocates for those who are harmed by the actions of others no matter how powerful, wealthy or well-connected. 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 justice system through education and action; and to uphold the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity in the legal profession.
“Through my Association membership I am informed regularly on legislative action, I have worked with other lawyers on significant trial and appellate cases, and I have made lasting friendships. I am SCAJ.”
John S. Nichols, Esq.
"I joined SCAJ in 1973 and I have attended almost every Convention and every CLE since then. I have learned how to be a better trial lawyer, learned new ways to present my cases, and have met many new lawyers from all over the state that has resulted in many referrals. I encourage all new or older trial lawyers to join and get active in this wonderful organization."
Fayrell Furr, Jr., Esq.
