The Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) is an apolitical organisation representing the views and interests of over 5,900 specialist, qualified employment lawyers in the UK. Since its inception in 1992, ELA has become the voice of authority in employment law.
Our members are drawn from all branches of the legal profession and include barristers and solicitors who act for employers and employees, trade unions, the voluntary sector, industry and the judiciary.
ELA’s fundamental aims are:
ELA provides its members with updates and commentary on employment law developments, high quality training, a co-ordinated channel through which to contribute to responses to government and other bodies’ consultations, opportunities to undertake pro bono work, to hear the views of eminent figures in employment and to network and socialise with fellow members. ELA’s uniqueness rests in the depth and wealth of knowledge of its diverse membership, and its neutrality on political issues.
ELA offers its members a unique forum to have a voice in the employment law world by getting involved in its varied work, be it in working on ELA’s responses to government consultations on proposed employment law legislation, speaking at ELA training events or undertaking pro bono work through the affiliations ELA has built up with pro bono organisations. Many members consider involvement in ELA’s work as a very important way of building on their experience and expertise, raising their individual profile and career development.
Unfortunately ELA cannot give legal advice. You can find a specialist employment lawyer by searching the membership directory.
