S.C. TRIAL LAWYERS CHANGE NAME, REDEFINE MISSION
Unveils New Name and Logo at 2008 Annual Convention
COLUMBIA, SC – The South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association (SCTLA) announced today they have a new name. Now called the South Carolina Association for Justice (SCAJ), the name change is intended to reflect their new, broader mission and better represent the purpose of the organization.
The name change was approved and finalized at the 2008 SCTLA/SCAJ annual convention in Hilton Head which ran August 7-10.
"The mission of the South Carolina Association for Justice involves more than courtroom battles," said Pete Strom, former U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina who assumed office as President at the convention. "We will also work with elected officials and policy makers to create a legal system that protects everyone, not just the rich and the influential."
SCAJ’s central mission to protect the rights of people will remain, but the group has expanded its purpose to become "the state’s leading advocate for justice and fairness under the law." Organizational changes are also underway….
Wait a minute, doesn’t that come awfully close to trademark infringement with the Justice League of America? What do Superman, the Green Lantern and Wonder Woman have to say about this?
