The Association for Student Judicial Affairs (ASJA) began in 1986 when Don Gehring of the University of Louisville, began to discuss with others his idea for a professional association to serve the needs of campus judicial officers. In January 1987, Don convened a small group of interested persons who were attending the Stetson University Law and Higher Education conference.
