Lawrenceville, N.J. attorney Bruce H. Stern has been sworn in as the treasurer of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) at the organization’s annual convention in Montreal. AAJ is the world’s largest trial bar, working to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others.

Stern, a shareholder at Stark & Stark, specializes in traumatic brain injury litigation. He is the author of numerous articles on the subject and co-authored a book entitled “Litigating Brain Injuries” published by Thomson Reuters. Stern also serves on the Board of Governors of the American Association for Justice and is a past president of the New Jersey Association for Justice, which awarded him its highest honor: The Gold Medal for Distinguished Service.

“I am excited to serve on the AAJ leadership team and continue to work toward our goal of protecting the civil justice system,” said Stern.

Stern is also a fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers and has been selected a fellow in the International Society of Barristers.

“Stern’s expertise and commitment to the association will be essential as we work to engage our membership and fight for AAJ’s mission in Congress, the courts, and in the arena of public opinion,” said AAJ President Larry Tawwater.
