The Property Litigation Association welcomes new members who are qualified to join. Please refer to our Articles and Memorandum for details as well to the document Membership Applications Guidelines. In summary, solicitors (but not trainees), legal executives and employed barristers may become members if they are substantially engaged in property litigation or property mediation. This is generally taken to exclude construction and planning.

The PLA year runs from 1st September to 31st August. New members may join the Association at any time but the full subscription is payable (unless the application is made in July or August). The current subscription is £50 p.a.


The application form should be completed by the applicant and endorsed by two referees who must be current members of the Association.

In exceptional circumstances an application may be considered without a proposer or seconder provided the applicant provides full details of his/her property litigation practice.

The completed application should be submitted to the Administrator.

You will be notified whether or not your application to join the PLA has been successful. Please note that there are regional groups and once you have joined the Association the local Chairman will notify you of any events which are due to take place.

Once your membership application has been successful you will be eligible to join the PLA LinkedIn Group.
