Welcome to the Southern Law Association

The Southern Law Association (SLA) is an association of solicitors whose members consist of practitioners working in Cork City and County.

The SLA is a voluntary association of its members and is not legally incorporated. It does not have regulatory powers and duties akin to the Law Society of Ireland. However, the SLA has gained official status and recognition over the years. In particular, the SLA is, by law, entitled to nominate five of its members to sit on the council of the Law Society of Ireland.
