Welcome to ALA - Rural Professionals online

The UK's premier independent inter-professional organisation since 1975



Agricultural Law Association

For almost 40 years, ALA has been the UK’s largest inter-professional organisation devoted to the business of the countryside. We focus on the law in a non-partisan, apolitical way in order to promote its knowledge, understanding and development among those who advise rural businesses.

CAP Conferences – the Next Phase
Our Spring series of CAP Reform Conferences was well received and we are now planning the next phase. Two more events in early September will move on to consider the practical implementation of CAP revisions in England. We are keeping Wales and Scotland under observation and events will be held there once more information is known. Details will be posted as soon as available. Keep visiting this site for more information on all relevant rural law matters.


Come and Join Us
Membership of ALA is open to any professional advising in rural business or any other person interested in the subject whose application is approved. The cost is a mere £80 per annum (equivalent to £1.54 per week).
