The Collective Redress Lawyers Association (“CORLA”) is dedicated to safeguarding and enhancing access to justice for claimants who have been harmed by wrongful conduct and who are seeking to vindicate their rights on a collective basis.
CORLA believes that group litigation is an effective means of providing claimants with access to justice, but that the current regime and practice is in need of improvement and reform. CORLA provides a forum to gather together specialist legal practitioners in the field of collective redress in order to advocate for this reform. It also facilitates dialogue and the sharing of best practice among the broad range of those involved in claimant-side group litigation, including civil society, consumer rights groups, academics and funders. It will develop training and knowledge sharing in the field of collective redress and will organise specialist events on the issues faced by practitioners.
CORLA has been founded by leading UK law firms specialising in collective redress: Edwin Coe, Hausfeld & Co, Keller Postman UK, Leigh Day, Milberg London, and Pogust Goodhead. CORLA now welcomes applications for membership from other firms, lawyers and others.Membership
