AAJ Conventions and Special Programs
The American Association for Justice (AAJ) holds two members-only conventions each year. The Annual Convention is held in the summer and the Winter Convention is held in — you guessed it — the winter!
Held over a five-day period, each of these events features top flight educational programs for plaintiff attorneys with a national focus; Section, Litigation Group, Caucus, and Committee meetings; a lineup of political speakers, including candidates, elected officials, and pundits; and social events. Both conventions offer members the opportunity to earn a year’s worth of CLE, to network, and to return to their practices reenergized and better able to represent their clients.

In addition to AAJ Conventions, the organization offers frequent special programs on topics of interest to trial lawyers. Furthermore, since lawyers are required to participate in a certain number of hours of continuing legal education (CLE) on a yearly basis, many of the educational programs (as well as Conventions) offer credits for attendees.
Attorney Doug Landau is one of the Few Virginia Lawyers Invited to be a Frequent Teacher for the American Trial Lawyers Association
Virginia trial lawyer and AAJ member Doug Landau is honored to have been asked three times in the past year to teach for AAJ at its CLE programs. Last January, he taught his colleagues about Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) at a special advanced program in New Orleans. In December, he spoke at a special program on Disability Law in Las Vegas. And, this upcoming July, he will once again speak at the AAJ Annual Convention held in Baltimore, Maryland.
Landau enjoys the time at AAJ events to network with, learn from, and teach to (!) his colleagues from all over the country. And he always learns something new to bring back to his own practice of law.
