Welcome to the JPLA
The Junior PLA (JPLA) was created to help our members of up to 10 years' PQE develop their technical expertise as well as their own network of property professionals. All JPLA networking events and training materials are specifically designed for legal professionals at earlier stages of their career.Join the conversation
Training and networking events
JPLA events are primarily aimed at bringing together junior members to engage in legal and practical training via seminars and workshops, as well as encouraging cohesion amongst the three main professional organisations: the PLA, the PBA (Property Bar Association) and RICS Matrics, offering the opportunity to network with diverse professionals from a wide range of backgrounds.
As part of these events, held nationwide, we encourage discussions on key issues affecting everyday practice across all three disciplines.
Upcoming JPLA events are announced on the PLA Events page and by email. JPLA membership is automatic for PLA members of less than 10 years’ PQE – there is no need to apply separately.
If you would like to get involved with the activities of the JPLA, please contact the JPLA Chair (on JPLA matters only please).
