CJAC: Civil Justice Association of California

What We Do


We lobby. We are a strong force against the trial lawyers in Sacramento, providing a voice for fairness and balance in the civil justice system. As a result of our powerful lobbying, we have stopped hundreds of dangerous bills from becoming law.

We talk to judges. We file amicus, or “friend of the court” briefs in dozens of cases each year. Our legal team reviews every single civil case in the state in order to decide which cases deserve our opinions.

We educate the public. We write op-eds, we talk to reporters, and we talk directly to citizens about how lawsuit abuse affects them.

We support fair-minded politicians. Our political program supports politicians who support fairness for everyone – plaintiffs and defendants – in the civil justice system.

We also track local media to stay on top of the latest campaign news and key issues in each district.
