How to find us


The membership of SALS comprises individuals from a diverse range of international, professional and educational backgrounds, with a shared interest in the advanced study and application of Law.

SALS is free to join, and membership is open to anyone with an active interest in the study of Law, and who holds the minimum of a postgraduate academic or professional qualification in Law or a related field. We also welcome applicants who possess an equivalent professional experience and standing within the legal community.

Since 2008, SALS has also welcomed students from the Institute, the University of London and any other university who is currently enrolled in a postgraduate programme in Law.

THE SOCIETY FOR ADVANCED LEGAL STUDIES is currently preparing a new electronic registration system for applicants and returning members, which is due to go online in autumn 2016.

In the meantime, we are still open to applications and welcome anyone who is interested in becoming a member of SALS to get in touch with the SALS Administrator at for more information.

More information about the meeting and further announcements will be made via the SALS Home Page.

By joining SALS, you will also actively support the Institute in its work to promote and facilitate the study of law in London and around the world, and become part of a large and active network of scholars and professional specialists. Other benefits of joining SALS include a free electronic subscription to new issues of Amicus Curiae.

As a Society, we welcome the active participation of our members, and encourage anyone who is interested to get involved in our activities. This can include participation in the SALS Working Group, contributions to our journal: Amicus Curiae, or attendance at one of our programme of lectures and events, organised in collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies.
