Membership and Benefits

Membership of the PLA entitles you to participate in PLA working groups, to attend PLA events, to attend and vote at the PLA’s Annual General Meeting and to make use of such other benefits and facilities as the PLA may make available from time to time.

The PLA membership year runs from 1 December – 30 November. The membership fee is valid for one year and runs from 1 December or the date that you initially commenced your membership.  Please note that membership is personal and is not transferrable to others within an organisation, nor does it entitle members to substitute attendance at an event.

The annual membership fee is currently £25 for private-sector members and £12.50 for public-sector members. For lawyers with less than 3 years post-qualifying experience at the commencement of the PLA membership year, there shall be no membership fee payable in respect of that membership year. The fee applies to each individual who wishes to be a member and attend events.
