FSLA Work and Social Events
Financial services law practitioners can find details of events directly relevant to their work on our events pages. Please also check these pages for information about social events such as our Christmas and Summer drinks.
FSLA Pro Bono
FSLA operates a pro bono scheme in conjunction with the Bar Pro Bono Unit (BPBU). The Scheme provides legal representation (experienced solicitors and barristers from amongst our members) for individuals and firms due to appear before either the Regulatory Decisions Committee of the FSA or the Upper Tribunal. The BPBU administers the scheme on behalf of the FSLA and filters applicants for assistance in the usual way, including means testing.
FSLA Social Mobility Scheme
In conjunction with the Social Mobility Fund (SMF), FSLA members host A-level students from disadvantaged backgrounds who are performing well academically and have an interest in law. The students spend time in the High Court, chambers and law firms.
FSLA contributes a quarterly article by a member or members in the Butterworth’s Journal of International Banking and Financial Law (JIBFL) called ‘FSLA View’. Members are encouraged to contribute articles and should contact the Executive Committee with proposed topics.
