The United Kingdom Constitutional Law Association (UKCLA) is the UK’s national body of constitutional law scholars affiliated to the International Association of Constitutional Law. Its object is to ‘encourage and promote the advancement of knowledge relating to United Kingdom constitutional law (broadly defined) and the study of constitutions generally’.

UKCLA  organises and supports seminars, runs a blog (followed by over 4,000 people and read by many more) and maintains a register of PhD projects related to UK constitutional law.

PLcoverJan2015In conjunction with Public Law, four times a year we republish that journal’s ‘current survey’.

UKCLA’s president is Sebastian Payne (University of Kent) and there is an executive committee elected by members.

Formed in 2003, initially as an informal group,  past chairs of the group are Professor Anthony Bradley (2003-2007), Professor Dawn Oliver (2007-2010), and Professor Andrew Le Sueur and Sebastian Payne (co-chairs, 2010-2013); Andrew Le Sueur was president of the UKCLA in its inaugural year (2014-15). Sir Stephen Sedley was the group’s founding Honorary President.

The group was put on a more formal footing in January 2014 and became UKCLA. The association’s rules are here.
