The purpose of the American Association of Non-Lawyers (“AANL”) is to help all Americans who suffer from corruption and deprivation of Constitutional rights… those who can’t afford lawyers or who choose to go without a lawyer. AANL was created on Friday the 13th of October 2023.
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
If you have been involved in a lawsuit or legal matter where you have represented yourself, you know why you care. Lawyers and Judges have unlawfully stripped the 325 million non-lawyers in America of our legal and Constitutional rights.
WHAT IS A SELF-REPRESENTED PARTY?
Legal participants without lawyers may be called Pro-Se Parties, Pro-Se Litigants, in propria persona (abbreviated to “pro per”), Sui Juris, litigant in person, self-represented litigant (SRL).
THE SIXTH AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ESTABLISHED RIGHTS OF SELF-REPRESENTATION IN 1789.
The Sixth Amendment provides the Constitutional right to self-representation.
In Faretta v. California, the Supreme Court of the United States stated: “In the federal courts, the right of self-representation has been protected by statute since the beginnings of our Nation. Section 35 of the Judiciary Act of 1789, 1 Stat. 73, 92, enacted by the First Congress and signed by President Washington one day before the Sixth Amendment was proposed, provided that ‘in all the courts of the United States, the parties may plead and manage their own causes personally or by the assistance of counsel.’”
So, our rights to self-representation were established by Congress in 1789.
Old Supreme Court cases have written: “That right should be enjoyed without fear of harassment or judicial prejudice. Furthermore, no law, regulation, or policy should exist to abridge or surreptitiously extinguish that right. Theoretically, self-represented litigants have no less of a right to effective due process as those who utilize a lawyer.”
But in practice, self-represented litigants have no rights. All judges in America routinely violate the rights of those who don’t have lawyers. Lawyers routinely violate the Rules they set up, so if you don’t have a lawyer, you are screwed.
Most Americans cannot afford attorneys. Lawyers charge $200 to $400 per hour or more.
THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CLUB WITH MEMBERSHIP RESTRICTED TO LAWYERS
The ABA was founded on August 21, 1878 (89 years after self-representation rights were established by Congress. It was founded by 75 lawyers from 20 states and the District of Columbia.
According to the ABA website: The American Bar Association (ABA) is a voluntary bar association of lawyers and law students; it is not specific to any jurisdiction in the United States. The ABA’s stated activities are:
- the setting of academic standards for law schools, and
- the formulation of model ethical codes related to the legal profession.
There are more than 1.3 million lawyers in the United States. As of fiscal year 2017, the ABA had 194,000 dues-paying members, constituting approximately 14.4% of American lawyers. In 1979, half of all lawyers in the U.S. were members of the ABA. We believe the ABA has dropped to 156,000 members in 2023. One of our association’s goals is to have 156,001 members.
The American Association of Non-Lawyers (“AANL”) is being founded by thousands of non-lawyers from all 50 states and DC, not 75 men from 20 states and DC.
It took 140 years, but in 1918, women were finally admitted to the American Bar Association. AANL welcomed women from Day 1. It took 165 years for the ABA to accept African-American members. AANL welcomed all races and colors from Day 1.
The association will “compete” with the American Bar Association, the association for lawyers. The BAR Association charges $75 to $450 annually, and you have to be a lawyer. AANL charges a one-time fee of a penny, and you cannot be a lawyer.
The American Bar Association has Model Rules of Professional Conduct. In the Preamble, the ABA uses the term “Lawyer.” The word “attorney” does not appear. The term “pro-se” does not appear. But the word “lawyer” appears 74 times. So, guess what? AANL will only use the term “lawyer.”
One of the first things we will be publishing is our own Rules of Pro-Se Conduct. AANL will basically just using the ABA’s. The Rules are very good. The problem is in Lawless America, the rules are not used or enforced.
CONGRESS HAS NEVER GIVEN RIGHTS TO THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION.
It’s just a club with restricted membership. The only legal rights it has have been stolen from the other 325 million of us.
The United States Department of Education recognizes the Council of the ABA Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar as a professional accrediting agency for law schools in the U.S. American law schools that are accredited by the council are termed “approved” by the ABA. That’s it for their authority.
63% OF THE PARTIES IN STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS TODAY ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY LAWYERS.
According to the National Center for State Courts in the United States and Wikipedia, and many other sources, 63% of the parties in state and federal courts today are not represented by lawyers.
We clearly outnumber the lawyers, but they have all the power as all the judges are members of the club. You have to be a lawyer to become a judge.
From the U.S. Census Bureau, usa.gov, uscourts.gov and courtstatistics.org, we have learned that:
The population of the United States is: 326,700,000.
83,000,000 lawsuits/cases were filed in state courts in 2019.
1,221,000 lawsuits/cases were filed in federal courts in 2021.
That’s a total of 84,221,000 cases filed annually.
This means 53,059,230 are self-represented cases filed each year.
But 44.4% are traffic cases. So, in civil and criminal cases (excluding traffic), let’s adjust for that.
83,000,000 cases were filed in state courts in 2019. 55.6% are civil and criminal cases of interest to us, or 46,148,000.
1,221,000 cases were filed in federal courts in 2021.
That gives us a total of 47,369,000 civil and criminal cases of interest to us filed annually.
In 63% of those cases, at least one party does not have a lawyer. – 29,842,470 cases with a self-represented party. 17,526,350 cases where both parties have lawyers.
The self-represented parties are in the majority, but we rarely win.
TOP SECRET CORRUPTION RULES ARE USED BY JUDGES TO ENSURE THE COMMON FOLK LOSE IN COURT.
Bill Windsor, founder of the American Association of Non-Lawyers, spent 16 years compiling a book of the Top Secret Rules used by judges to inflict corruption. It’s titled Benchbook for U.S. Judges – Corruption Edition, and it’s for sale on Amazon. $9.99. Every self-represented party needs to read this book.

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF NON-LAWYERS
63% of the parties in state and federal courts today are Non-Lawyers. There are almost 30 million cases filed annually in which at least one of the parties is not a lawyer, but until now, there has been no association to help protect the Non-Lawyer parties. Those without lawyers almost always lose. This Association will help you for free, and we will strive to help the 63% obtain legal rights and regain Constitutional rights. See AANL.net for more information. Please join if for no other reason than to help those whose lives are destroyed by corrupt judges and lawyers.
The American Association of Non-Lawyers will hold weekly Podcasts.
