The Pennsylvania Association for Justice—an organization that works to promote a fair and effective justice system— held its annual summer retreat in Hershey, Pennsylvania, from June 28, 2012 to July 1, 2012.
After the meeting, the newly installed president of the organization, Mr. Scott B. Cooper, recorded a webcast to share his goals for the group in 2012-2013. They are as follows:
- Introduce proactive legislation in the Pennsylvania legislature to preserve and expand the rights of injured victims. Mr. Cooper noted that many Pennsylvania legislators want to destroy the rights of injured victims in order to protect big businesses and insurance companies.
- Increase participation of the future leaders section. According to Mr. Cooper, this committee is the lifeblood of the organization, and he is encouraging these members to become even more involved. He stated that many of the future leaders would take positions as chairpersons and vice chairpersons of committees in the coming year.
- Establish a dialogue with members by conducting meetings throughout Pennsylvania to provide organization updates, discuss relevant legislative issues, and seek input and feedback from members.
Mr. Cooper is a partner at the law firm of Schmidt Kramer P.C., in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He specializes in personal injury law with an emphasis on motor vehicle accident and insurance cases.
A long-time member of the Pennsylvania Association of Justice, Mr. Cooper has been honored by the organization with two prestigious awards—the George F. Douglas Amicus Curiae Award for outstanding appellate advocacy in 2005 and the Milton D. Rosenberg Award for leadership in the area of victims’ rights in 2008. In addition to his role as President of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, he is also the Chairman of the Legislative Policy Committee and serves on both the Executive Committee and Board of Governors.
