Join IPEBLA

IPEBLA membership is open to any individual holding a law degree or other recognized professional legal qualification and who has practical experience advising on a range of legal aspects of pensions or other employee benefits (as a lawyer in private practice, as an employed lawyer, as an academic or as a qualified paralegal).

For application, see How to Apply at foot of this page.

Dues are normally paid for a two-year term, but can be paid for one-year (and renewed the next year) if preferred. The two-year membership dues for 2022-23 will be €289 Euros ($342 USD or $416 CAD), while the one-year membership dues for 2022 are €184 Euros ($218 USD or $265 CAD). 

SPECIAL OFFERS

  • Multiple Memberships - For every 3 members a firm has in one country, that firm is entitled to 1 additional memberships in that country FREE of charge.

  • Young Leaders - Pension law practitioners with less than 10 years experience receive their 1st year FREE. They must be nominated by a full IPEBLA member from their firm. In order to do this, please reach out to the IPEBLA Management office. 

  • Other stakeholders - Academics, government officials and retired practitioners pay half the membership fee.

Last but not least, IPEBLA offers an Associate Membership category for individuals who by virtue of their roles in the pension, benefits and/or executive compensation sector(s) wish to maintain or obtain IPEBLA membership for non-commercial purposes and who cannot meet the requirements of full membership (i.e. being a legal professional with at least 50% work in the field of pensions). We invite you to share this Membership category with your networks in order to help grow IPEBLA’s reach and provide new opportunities for IPEBLA members to connect with non-lawyers working in the pension and/or benefit and/or executive compensation industry.  

When you become a member, you will receive a password entitling you to access the 'Members Only' section of IPEBLA's website, including access to conference papers and the members' directory.  You will also receive the IPEBLA International Pension Lawyer journal, as well as notice of upcoming teleconference and biennial and joint conference meetings.
