Armed Forces Legal Action (AFLA) is a new nationwide scheme, established within the legal profession, calling upon lawyers across the United Kingdom to help the men and women who safeguard our country when they themselves need assistance.
The AFLA website carries a range of information on the scheme, how to sign up as a law firm, and how to access services as a member of the armed forces.
The concept was originally developed by serving officer and Scottish solicitor Allan Steele. The Honorary President of AFLA is Wing Commander Andrew G McKendrick, RAF (Retd), solicitor advocate.
Membership of the scheme is gained by law firms entering into a simple memorandum of agreement where they undertake to offer the discount to the above groups. In return, they receive access to marketing and promotion. There is no charge or cost at any stage.
Please visit the AFLA website for more information.
This scheme is independent of the Law Society of Scotland, and is being run by a small steering group as it seeks to gauge interest. The Society is supporting this member group in gaining feedback from the profession.
