London Solicitors Litigation Association
Welcome to the LSLA newsletter. You will find below details of some of our most recent activities and those we have planned for the future. We also refer to some legal issues which might affect you.
Described by Chambers & Partners 2009 as "Something of a legend in his own lifetime", Edwin Glasgow QC is a leading silk renowned for his representation of clients in commercial disputes and at public inquiries. He represented the majority of the individual soldiers at Lord Saville’s Bloody Sunday Inquiry.

Last year members of the LSLA visited the Supreme Court for an informative talk by Louise Di Mambro (Registrar of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and Acting Registrar of the Privy Council) about the role of The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. This was followed by a short tour of the Court.
The event was so well received that we decided to repeat it and again was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
