"Pan-European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers"

Apparently with support from the European Union, personal injury lawyers cooperating across national lines maintain the ten-year-old organization PEOPIL, which last month (notes John Sullivan of the Civil Justice Association of California) held a conference in Valencia, Spain, at which it hosted the president and president-elect of the American Association for Justice (formerly ATLA). PEOPIL's website lists committees working in just five areas -- aviation, medical negligence, road traffic accidents and whiplash, occupational health, and tourism -- a far cry from the hundred-plus litigation groups under the AAJ/ATLA umbrella. More background is at the website of U.K. solicitors Russell Jones & Walker, and the report from the group's 2007 tenth anniversary conference in Prague is here (PDF).
