Records maintained and where to find them

UKELA maintains a number of records, all of which comply with current guidelines including GDPR and as recommended by the Charity Commission and Companies House.

They include:

· Companies House and Charity Commission records for UKELA and its trustees and directors

· Membership data maintained by the Membership Development Manager

· Financial records maintained by the Treasurer

· Records of contracts with staff and other contractors and their performance management maintained by the Executive Director

UKELA also maintains a number of publications. Our main outlets are our websites, and Law & Your Environment, our public information website. We also publish a members' journal, elaw, every 2 months. You can look at latest editions on our elaw pages. We run social media pages including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Follow us to keep up to date with our events and other activities.


We actively welcome volunteers to join us - there are lots of opportunities. Our trustees are all volunteers from our membership, as are our Working Party, Regional Group and Devolved Administration convenors. We also have student volunteers who help in a number of ways, including supporting the work of our Working Parties and acting as advisors to Council. If you have would like to volunteer or have an idea about a new voluntary position please do contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
