The HRLA Corporate Membership Scheme was established in 2009 to offer legal firms and chambers the opportunity of multiple memberships on a fixed annual rate. Corporate members receive the following benefits:
- Find out first about upcoming HRLA events
- Free entry for all corporate member trainees, pupils and qualified lawyers to all HRLA CPD point accredited seminars, lectures and workshops.
- Discounted prices on selected human rights publications from the Oxford University Press.
Corporate membership enables legal firms and chambers to meet their legal staff’s annual CPD requirements. It provides a valuable opportunity to enhance staff training and development whilst engaging with a broad cross section of the legal community in some of the most important discussions and debates regarding the promotion and protection of human rights in the UK. The HRLA now has a wide range of corporate members including:
- Allen & Overy LLP
- Bindmans LLP
- Blackstone Chambers
- Clifford Chance
- Doughty Street Chambers
- Essex Court Chambers
- Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
- Hogan Lovells International LLP
- Landmark Chambers
- Monckton Chambers
- Thirty Nine Essex Street Chambers
- 3 Raymond Buildings
We are tremendously grateful for the generous support and assistance provided by our corporate members.

Sponsorship of HRLA Bursary Scheme
Corporate members are also invited to sponsor the HRLA Bursary Scheme. The Scheme was established in 2006 to support law students (including recent graduates) to undertake unfunded or low paid short-term work related to UK human rights law but who are constrained from doing so because of their lack of financial means. Each year the HRLA provides around 5 awards from an annual bursary fund of between £4,000 and £6,000.
In return for sponsorship of the HRLA Bursary Scheme, the HRLA is pleased to nominate one of the bursary awards in the name of the corporate member.
We are tremendously grateful to Sigrid Rausing Trust Trust for generously sponsoring the 2013 HRLA Bursary Scheme.
If you would like to discuss sponsoring the HRLA Bursary Scheme, please email Markus Findlay, the HRLA Executive Committee member responsible for the bursary scheme, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
