Legal practitioners working in the field of personal injury law
in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland, The Isle
of Man, and the Channel Islands whose personal practice is predominantly for the
injured and the victims of accidents.

of personal injury law in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic
of Ireland, The Isle of Man and The Channel Islands and who are currently either
on maternity leave, career break, or retired and remain sympathetic to the aims
of the association.
Academic lawyers working in or for any institution in any of the
above jurisdictions who are interested in the field of personal injury law. You
should be sympathetic to the aims of APIL and not hold a substantial commitment
to an organisation or association acting for or supporting persons or companies
who act on behalf of defendants in personal injury litigation.
Students who are sympathetic to the aims of APIL.
Overseas lawyers practising in the field of personal injury law,

to any person who in the opinion of the executive does not comply with the requirements
of membership or adhere to the objectives of APIL, and its code of conduct.
Paralegals/legal support staff APIL recognises that there are an
increasing number of paralegals/legal support staff who are taking on permanent
legal positions within PI practices and running a full caseload or assisting with
a caseload under supervision. This new membership category allows paralegals/legal
support staff to join the association to gain the benefits of membership (no voting
rights) for an annual fee of £100.00 plus VAT. We hope you will encourage paralegals
within your firm to join APIL. Application forms are available from Sharon Smith,
Membership and Accreditation Officer.
