The benefits of giving to LAWPAC 
Your greatest benefit is seeing the positive effects that occur as a result of LAWPAC's ongoing election work. Your monthly support is recognized in PAJ's printed Member Directory. You will receive the monthly "Political Pipeline" email news, a bi-annual directory of Pennsylvania's legislators and a LAWPAC pin.

How your contribution is spent
Because PAJ pays all administrative costs, 100% of your LAWPAC contribution is put to work electing candidates to office who share your interests. Your contribution is pooled with others from across the state so that it can be used where it is most effective.

Contributions to candidates are approved by the LAWPAC Trustees, both Democrats and Republicans, who are elected by the Board of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice.  LAWPAC contributes to candidates every month of the 2-year election cycle.

Who gives to LAWPAC?
Hundreds of PAJ members from across the state have made their commitment to LAWPAC. Some have contributed for nearly 20 years. Among our supporters are longtime leaders of the trial bar as well as first-year associates.
Only members of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice may contribute. By law, LAWPAC cannot accept corporate contributions. See contribution form for details. 

Contribute today
The LAWPAC policy requires an automatic monthly contribution from a bank account or credit card.  Download a contribution form.

Why monthly contributions?
Your monthly support creates a stable and predictable cash flow, allowing LAWPAC to distribute funds to candidates each month during the election cycle, and to make long range political plans. In addition, the administrative expense of soliciting supporters each year for another donation is nonexistent.

This system of monthly contributors has proven to be the most efficient and practical way for LAWPAC to operate, and has helped us become known as one of the most effective political action committees in Pennsylvania.

Changing or canceling your support
Monthly contributions may be increased, decreased or changed to another account as you wish, as soon as we receive written notice. To change your account or contribution amount, please complete a new contribution form.
To terminate your monthly support, simply mail or fax a letter to LAWPAC. Processing may take 1 to 4 weeks.

AAJ PAC involvement
Unless you indicate otherwise AAJ PAC, the political action committee of the American Association for Justice will receive $10 of each monthly contribution to support candidates in federal campaigns, giving Pennsylvania trial lawyers important impact on a national level. AAJ PAC also manages the monthly collection of contributions, which eliminates all collection costs at the state level.   The portion of your monthly AAJ contribution used for administrative costs is only approx. $1.50.
