The Ohio Association for Justice is a key player in the legislative arena. The Ohio Association for Justice provides the resources to monitor and take part in the debate on important legislative activity at the state level while supporting the political efforts of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America at the federal level. The Association is also an active participant in the political and election process through its political action committee, ADOPT, and its national affiliate, ATLA PAC.

     To support these activities, the Academy has developed a political giving program designed to accept contributions on behalf of OAJ, ADOPT and ATLA PAC.

Supports legislative and Supreme Court candidates who are 
dedicated to the preservation of individual rights, the right to a trial by jury, open access to courts, and fair compensation to injured workers.

     While there are allies and consumer groups at the state and national level who share our goals, OAJ is the only organization that has the personnel and resources to effectively impact the political process on behalf of plaintiffs and claimants in Ohio.
