The Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) is an apolitical organisation representing the views and interests of just over 6,000 specialist, qualified employment lawyers in the UK. Since its inception in 1992, ELA has become the voice of authority in employment law.  ELA’s uniqueness rests in the depth and wealth of knowledge of its diverse membership, and its neutrality on political issues.

Who Are We?

Our members are drawn from all branches of the legal profession and include barristers and solicitors who act for employers and employees, trade unions, the voluntary sector, industry and the judiciary.

ELA cannot give legal advice. You can find a specialist employment lawyer by searching the membership directory.

             to promote the best practice of employment law; and

             to support the work and represent the interests of UK employment lawyers
