The FSLA was formed earlier this year by some of the most influential lawyers in the financial services sector. It was the brainchild of a group of lawyers who were on secondment to the FSA who felt the need to work together as financial institutions struggle to deal with an increasingly complex regulatory environment.
The association is aimed specifically at student lawyers, to whom it offers a reduced rate joining fee.
