She has accomplished many great things in her 22-year career. She has been the first chair on multimillion dollar trials, won a case that changed healthcare safety measures, and she has won awards for her leadership and willingness to be a role model for others. Now Julie Braman Kane has been elected to the presidency of the American Association of Justice (AAJ).
The AAJ, formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, has been working for plaintiff rights for over 65 years. The organization is fighting tort reform and forced arbitration, while protecting legal representation for clients who would normally not have access to the civil justice system. The AAJ often works on Capitol Hill to give a voice to trial bars all over the nation.
What Will The New AAJ President-Elect Do?
When asked what she planned to do during her tenure as president of the AAJ, Kane said, “My overarching goal is to do whatever needs to be done to protect victims’ rights… We will support candidates who will support the civil justice system. We also work to help people in Congress and in leadership positions understand the needs of the civil justice system.”
Julie follows both Bill Colson and Lewis S. “Mike” Eidson in her upcoming tenure as the president of the AAJ. With the 2016 elections on the horizon, her leadership could be very important for the legal future of our country.
