UKCLA membership 2015: please renew or join

cropped-ukcla-logo.pngThe online store is now open for 2015 membership. At the AGM last week, members voted to reduce the annual subscription for student members to £10; ordinary and associate membership is now £20. Details are here. In 2014 more than 100 people – based in the UK and around the world – became a member of the Association and supported our work. If you were one of them, please continue to be a member of the community. If you were not, please consider joining. Membership runs for the calendar year regardless of when you join. UKCLA relies on membership fees to fund its work.

Benefits of membership include:

  • being able to publicise relevant events, publications, news, on the UKCLA blog/website.
  • eligibility to apply for funding for your events (including mentoring for early career researchers organising academic events for the first time); details, including how to apply, are here.
  • becoming involved in community of doctoral students: your PhD project can be listed on the UKCLA PhD Register and brought to national and international attention.
  • being part of a community of constitutional law scholars in the UK and around the world.
  • feel virtuous about helping to finance the UKCLA blog; we now have more than 4,000 “followers” (receiving blog posts directly to their email inbox or twitter feed) around the world and since its launch in November 2010 more than 860,000 individuals have visited the blog. You may have noticed the UKCLA website was refreshed last week – including a new page on how to use the blog for current awareness, research and debate.
  • support the International Association of Constitutional Law: UKCLA is affiliated to the IACL and members contribute to its work.
