Association of University Legal Practitioners (AULP)

The Association of University Legal Practitioners (AULP) is the association for in-house lawyers working in Higher Education.  

Our members are drawn from in-house teams across Great Britain and Ireland, who wish to share their knowledge and experience to tackle common challenges arising in the Higher Education sector. Working together, we aim to help shape sector-wide responses to emerging issues, provide a safe environment to share technical legal and strategic challenges, and offer peer to peer support for legal teams of all sizes. 

AULP supports its members to help the sector operate effectively through an increasingly complex legal and regulatory landscape, identifying and managing risks across the whole range of legal issues Higher Education Institutions face. AULP also creates professional development and career progression opportunities for its members – helping the sector’s lawyers to be the best they can be. We are led by an Executive Committee, who meet monthly with diverse  representatives from a range of institutions, in terms of size and geography.
