FSLA arranges a number of training courses
and social events for junior lawyers.

FSLA Workshops

FSLA Workshops – which take place once a year – are designed for junior lawyers to get up to speed with new areas of law and practise. Workshops have a relaxed atmosphere and all speakers are experts on their subjects.

FSLA Junior Lawyers Group

The FSLA Junior Lawyers Group is run by members of the executive committee who are themselves junior lawyers. All law students, trainees and pupils, as well as junior solicitors and barristers with an interest in financial services law are encouraged to attend the group’s social events around the City.

FSLA Essay Competition 2022

By | Junior Lawyers, Students | No Comments

The competition is now closed. Thank you everyone for your entries.

The Financial Services Lawyers Association is pleased to announce its annual essay competition.

The title for this year’s competition is as follows:

Laundromat, police state or somewhere in between: has the correct balance been struck between anti-money laundering, anti-fraud, and anti-corruption aims on the one hand and the benefits of free enterprise and a global financial market on the other?
If not, explain one legislative or regulatory change which could make a significant difference.

The purpose of the essay is to provide students with the opportunity to apply their studies to issues that are of particular relevance to the financial services industry and wider society.

Essays should be no longer than 1,500 words. The full competitions rules can be found on the FSLA website through the link below.

Please submit your essay by Friday 15 July 2022 to essay@fsla.org.uk.

Prizes will be presented at a reception hosted on a date to be confirmed.

The Chris Stallard Memorial Prize (first prize) is £1,500 and an internship with the FCA.

The runner up prize is £750. Third prize is £500.

Entrants are not required to be FSLA members, though free membership is offered to all law students.

FSLA Essay Competition 2022 Rules

“On both the prudential and conduct side, we thought that simple rules and principles would suffice to deliver good results…We now know the limits of those assumptions and we need to design new approaches.”
