A resource for Irish lawyers based in London


The London Irish Lawyers Association (“LILA”) is a professional organisation for lawyers based in London with an affinity to the island of Ireland.  The Association is built on this affinity within an apolitical and non-denominational context.  The members of the Association are lawyers, students and academics.

The Association aims to provide a resource for its members at all stages of their careers as well as to provide opportunities for those newly qualified or newly entitled to practise in England and Wales to engage with more senior solicitors and barristers. It aims to encourage relationships by organising lectures, social events and workshops and to represent members by contributing to debate on issues of professional or legal significance.

Please note LILA is not a legal services provider and is unable to assist with legal enquiries or advice.

Membership is free and can be obtained by completing a form in the contact section of this website.
