Society of Legal Scholars

Subscription Policy

Early Career and other concessions

Concessions in subscription fees have been authorised by Council for early-career members (in post for less than four years full-time) and those reading for a doctorate, or who are employed part-time in a teaching post in a qualifying institution. These attract a two-thirds reduction for the qualifying period.


Subscription payments and arrears payments both receive relief from taxation within the United Kingdom.

Convenor discount

Council has agreed that in recognition of their contribution to the Society, members who later become convenors will receive a 50% discount in their subscription.

Discount for institutional membership

We would like to draw the attention of Heads of Department to Council’s decision to grant rebates for bulk purchases where departments pay for their staff to be members.

The rebates are:

20+ members = 5% discount
40+ members  = 10% discount
80+ members  = 15% discount
120+ members  = 20% discount

If you would like to pursue this possibility, please contact the Honorary Treasurer.
