The APL is an association of more than a thousand lawyers who practise pensions law in the UK. Membership is subject to application and approval. Our members include leading legal practitioners in the field.

We began life in 1984, principally as a forum for exchanging ideas amongst lawyers advising in a relatively new legal specialism. We have, since then, significantly grown as a professional body and extended our range of activities to reflect the now established field of pensions law.

We are not a political organisation, and do not comment on pensions policy, but we engage with Government on various initiatives, providing practical experience and technical input on legislation and regulatory guidance.
