Part-time working
If your contract of employment is part-time, you may qualify for discounted membership fees. Please contact the Membership Team to find out about the available discounts.

Parental and maternity leave
If you are taking a period of parental or maternity leave, you are entitled to a 50% discount on fees during your leave. It is important that you continue with membership during this period as if you choose to cancel your membership we will be unable to provide you with legal cover, support and representation for any issues which arise during your parental or maternity leave.

Please note that we are unable to apply a discount retrospectively, so it is important to contact us in advance of your parental or maternity leave commencing to apply for the discount.

To apply for a discount please contact us.
