Our local groups

We encourage anyone interested in joining YLAL to sign up as a member of the national organisation here and get involved in our campaigns, as you can make a real difference to our work this way, no matter where you live.

However we also believe in the importance of being able to meet and communicate with members who live nearby, whether you are working, studying or just interested in legal aid. If you want to get to know like-minded, passionate legal aid lawyers both current and aspiring, discuss issues in the sector and what you can do about them locally, contact the group nearest you and check out the meetings and events page for what’s on.

In the past, YLAL had a number of regional groups who met regularly. We plan to revitalise our network of local groups in 2024. If you want to organise a YLAL regional group in your area or region, please get in touch.
