UKCLA is a membership organisation, reliant on annual subscriptions to maintain and develop its work. Membership is for the calendar year (now 2022) regardless of when you join.

You can use the secure PayPal payment at the bottom of this page to pay. You do not need a PayPal account to make the payment – simply select the relevant card type you wish to pay with and checkout as a guest.

Alternatively, you can pay your membership fee directly into the Association bank account. Existing members have been emailed directly by the Membership Secretary with the relevant details. Potential members and former members should email the membership secretary Dr Javier Oliva at indicating the category of membership they wish to apply for.

  • Ordinary membership £20 (if you are engaged in law teaching and/or legal scholarship, whether in the United Kingdom or elsewhere)

  • Associate membership £20 (if you are a legal practitioner, civil servant, member/officer/staff of a legislative body, member of the judiciary and other people with an interest in constitutional law)
