Association of Sri Lankan Lawyers in the U.K. ("ASLL") was
formed on the 17th May 2003 to bring together lawyers of Sri Lankan
origin (both Sri Lankan and British born) by providing a common
forum where Barristers, Solicitors, Academics and Students in the
Legal field, as well as others who are associated within the Legal
field could interact and exchange ideas with a view to assisting
each other including providing continuing education and inter-acting
with professional bodies such as the Bar Council, the Law Society
and other focus groups including ILPA, JCWI, HLPA.
Members consist of Solicitors, Barristers, Attorneys-at-Law,
Notaries. Law Students, Paralegals, Outdoor and indoor Clerks join
us as Associate Members. There are others who have been co-opted and
they include Immigration Law Practitioners, Accountants, and members
of the profession who are not necessarily of Sri Lankan Origin.
have also used the forum as a much needed base for social
interaction and to address the needs of others such as the Tsunami
victims and other victims of disasters, through our own Charity,
registered with the Charity Commissioner of England & Wales. Our
social activities have included an annual Dinner Dance, a
Law-Medical Cricket Match followed by a Dance and other cricketing
and sports events where members families and friends have had the
occasion of meeting each other and discuss things other than Law!
