Welcome to the website of the UK State Aid Law Association – UKSALA.
Membership of UKSALA is open to lawyers, academics, students, public servants, and others interested in State aid and subsidy control law and its implementation in the United Kingdom. Although the United Kingdom has now left the EU, the creation of a UK subsidy control regime (as required by the UK/EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement) and the application of Article 10 of the Ireland/Northern Ireland Protocol will give us plenty to discuss: and we also hope to cover wider international developments including important EU developments and WTO subsidy law.
Membership is free: to join, please go to our membership page. We hope that all those with a professional or policy interest in subsidy control and State aid law will consider joining: we welcome both experts in the field and those who are not experts but sometimes have to deal with subsidy/State aid issues, or who are simply interested.
We hold regular talks and seminars on subsidy control/State aid issues: for details of forthcoming events, please see our events page. We also run a blog covering significant developments in subsidy control and State aid, as well as discussions of matters of ongoing interest. We also aim to contribute to public debate on subsidy control and State aid issues, and to the thinking of the UK Government, the new independent regulator, the devolved governments and governments further afield.
The President of UKSALA is Christopher Vajda QC, former Judge of the Court of Justice of the EU.
UKSALA is run by a steering committee – details on the about us page. If you would be interested in joining the steering committee, or have any suggestions as to things that we could be doing, please use the form on the contact page.
