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.

“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.”
