Join the ILS

The Industrial Law Society is unique

Unique because we draw our membership from the whole spectrum of those interested in the debate surrounding work, the worker and the law; members are tribunal judges, appellate judges, academics from professors to students, trades unionists, solicitors, barristers, personnel professionals, mediators and conciliators.

Unique because our members benefit from that diversity which informs the debate at all our evening meetings and conferences.

Unique because we run evening meetings which are free to members. Pre-pandemic they were held in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Currently the Society provides online webinars free of charge to members.

Unique because the Society’s journal, The Industrial Law Journal is a peer review publication with an international reputation which is sent free to members every quarter.

Unique because members can get online access to the Journal and its back editions.

Unique because at our Annual Conference in September conference members can attend workshops, debates and lectures given by all sides of industry at significant discounts.
