Founded in 2005, the Social Housing Law Association (SHLA) is an organisation of and for professionals in the social housing sector. It is a forum where ideas and information can be exchanged and discussed.
Membership is open to all social housing professionals who work for social landlords. Based in London with regional groups in the Midlands and the North, currently we have members from local authorities, housing associations, housing and policy professionals, solicitors and barristers. 
Each year we organise events on legal and practical issues affecting social housing landlords both in London and in the regions.
Our annual conference in November is a chance for social housing professionals to come together to learn about and discuss key issues impacting on the sector.
All our events are open to members and non-members. We also respond to relevant government consultations on behalf of our members.
