CIvil Justice

Founded in 1979, the Civil Justice Association of California (CJAC) is the only statewide association dedicated solely to improving California’s civil liability system, in the legislature, the regulatory arena, and the courts. Our membership base consists of businesses and associations from a broad cross-section of California industries.

Year after year, the business community counts on CJAC’s Public Policy efforts to hold the line on a barrage of legislation containing litigation threats aimed at California businesses. In the current legislative session, we have stopped numerous new private rights of action and unwarranted employer liability expansions.

The courts are another important legal reform channel, where CJAC’s Appellate Center program has seen significant success through amicus engagement at the appellate level on civil liability issues spanning damages, product liability, and landlord-tenant law.

CJAC also sponsors a number of programs to advance our mission and equip our members on a variety of fronts, including: California Project, FairPAC, and Local Action.
