Welcome to the Scottish Young Lawyers' Association
The Scottish Young Lawyers' Association (SYLA) is a non-profit organisation, which educates, entertains and represents young lawyers' in Scotland.
2014 was a special year for SYLA. The first half of the year saw the Association host the European Young Bar Association's Spring Conference in Edinburgh, drawing young lawyers from across to the globe to meet in our capital city. We also celebrated our 40th anniversary in style with members, past and present, at our SYLA Birthday Party in Glasgow.
2015 looks set to be another eventful period for SYLA as we continue with our So you want to be, Beyond the Basics and Spotlight on... event series, together with the return of the Criminal Day Conference, a new Civil Day Conference for 2015, Women in Law, and of course, the Spring Ball.
We are absolutely delighted to have been nominated for the award of Legal Training Provider of the Year at the Scott & Co Legal Awards for 2015. This is an award we first won back in 2012 and it is an honour to be recognised as a finalist once again. We simply couldn't do what we do without the support of the profession and all our members across Scotland - thank you.
2015 promises to be another action packed year for SYLA. You can meet the SYLA committee for this year here and check out our upcoming events here. We are all looking forward to seeing you at an event in 2015 soon!
