The mission of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association is to promote fellowship, learning, and networking among trial lawyers throughout thirteen southern states. We do not engage in political activity or fundraising of any kind, leaving those worthwhile activities to the state trial lawyer associations and the American Association for Justice. 

The Southern Trial Lawyers Association encompasses the following member states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Membership in the Southern Trial Lawyers Association is by nomination. To qualify for membership, you must be a practicing attorney as well as a current member of your state trial lawyer association and the American Association for Justice.

To be considered for membership, complete the online application linked below. (If you prefer to complete an application to submit by mail, download it here.) Please answer all of the questions on the application completely to avoid a delay in processing your application. Approval is required by a member of the Board of Governors from the state in which you reside or practice, or by a national officer of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association.
