Are you interested in becoming a trustee of ILPA?

Each year at the Annual General Meeting (save the date for 23 November 2021) the committee of trustees are appointed. Our committee of trustees must both reflect and represent the interests of all ILPA members, from all sectors of immigration work and throughout the UK.

Whatever your area of work or level of experience you have something to offer.

We urge all interested members to put themselves forward for election to the committee of trustees.

Trustees play a pivotal role in ensuring that ILPA operates in the best interests of its members and stays true to its mission of promoting and improving the advice and representation of migrants and securing a non-racist, non-sexist, just and equitable system of immigration, refugee and nationality law practice.

As a trustee you will have the opportunity to support and shape our work and direction of the organisation. You can make a significant difference that’s not only important to you, but also to all of our members. ILPA immensely appreciates the experience, expertise and passion that our Trustees bring to the organisation.

You can find out more about how to become an ILPA Trustee here. The next elections will be held in Autumn 2021. The timetable for this year is below, we will send out the links to the relevant sites when they are live:

ILPA’s Articles of Association

I’m a trustee of ILPA because the organisation has been a great support to me throughout my legal career. Now having the opportunity to use my experience and skills to shape the direction of the organisation, and support it’s development, is really rewarding.

Julie Moktadir, ILPA Trustee, Partner at Stone King LLP

I’m a trustee of ILPA because I place immense value on the work of the organisation and want to do what I can to support it. The coming years will place tremendous pressures on the sector and we need a thriving ILPA to support its members and to drive policy and practice in the right direction.
