APTLA Members are part of an ever-increasing group of professionals in Civil Litigation and Personal Injury practice. Membership is extremely valuable to plaintiff civil trial practice. Some of the services available to our Members are:

  • Priority registration and reduced rates for APTLA Legal Education Conferences and associated materials;
  • Access to APTLA''s private and confidential ListServ for Regular and Sustaining Members to share practice tips, trial and settlement strategies, caselaw, precedents, commentary on experts, referrals and more;
  • Access to APTLA Med Mal Subsection ListServ, if desired;
  • Receipt of our newsletter, APT Law, providing case reviews, event information and reports on various APTLA projects;
  • Access to APTLA''s website, which is a state-of-the-art way to share documents, resources and more.

In several of the Atlantic Provinces, so-called "Tort Reform" has resulted in a denial of access to justice for innocent victims of automobile accidents. Join APTLA and assist us in working to support your full trial practice with resources and experience; assist us to prevent further erosion of civil rights, and work with us to right the wrongs of "Tort Reform".

APTLA also has an Associate Membership Category for non-lawyers who are committed and devoted to the concept of a fair trial, the adversary system and a just result for the injured, the accused and those whose rights are jeopardized.


To qualify as a member of APTLA, an applicant must, for the most part in his or her civil practice, represent the plaintiff. In order to complete the Membership process, we need to receive your payment (by cheque or credit card) and a completed Application form. Please mail us the Application as soon as possible.
