Events & Lectures

The LSLA runs a variety of popular events for its members each year, ranging from an established lecture programme to seminars on topical legal issues to social events for networking. The JLSLA hosts events targeted at junior litigators. By creating an environment in which everyone at these events will have a similar level of qualification, the intention is that members will feel more comfortable in approaching one another and developing contacts within their peer group. Many of those events are organised in connection with bar associations, with the aim of encouraging contact and interaction between civil litigators and barristers.

Please note - when booking paying events, in order to receive the member rate, the booking must be made with the member's LSLA registered email address.

If paying by bank transfer, please use the booking reference number as the payment reference.
