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.
The SYLA will host its Annual General Meeting on Thursday 26 May 2016 at the offices of Anderson Strathern LLP, 1 Rutland Court, Edinburgh EH3 8EY, commencing at 6pm.
At the AGM the President will report on the year's activities and present accounts. Any amendments to the constitution will also be moved and voted on.
There will then be the election of committee members for 2016/17.
The committee has always been lucky to attract hard-working, innovative and dedicated young lawyers who volunteer to give something back to the profession. The work of the SYLA is varied. We need people who are good at organising events, PR and media, design, advertising and IT and communications. We are uniquely placed to address representation issues and politics surrounding the law and if this interests you then we would love to have to on board.
The following positions are available: President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary as well as 7 non-executive committee positions. In line with the constitution of the SYLA, only current committee members who have served on the committee for at least 12 months may stand for President. All other positions are open to the membership.
Later that evening, from 7pm, we will be hosting our Annual Summer BBQ at Indigo Yard – tickets are priced £10 and we look forward to seeing as many as possible of you there for our last social of this SYLA year. It has been a great one, so we are looking forward to seeing it out with a bang! Tickets can be purchased here.
