Do you qualify for Associate Membership?
Associate Membership is only open to individuals who provide professional services to the legal industry.
Initially we are aiming this opportunity at independent barristers and mediators. We may open up the opportunity to other professions in the future.
It is not open to an organisation to join as an Associate Member.
Applicants need to be able to demonstrate that:
- they have a personal injury ‘practice’, i.e. undertake motor personal injury work within their own discipline, the majority of which is representing the injured claimant
- as an individual, they deal with a minimum of 10 motor personal injury claim instructions per year and have an appropriate degree of expertise in handling such claims.
What you need to do
Once you are happy that you meet the criteria, you should complete our short application form and sent it to the MASS Office. You will need to include a statement explaining why you believe you meet the Associate Membership criteria and contact details of a MASS member who will support your application.
What happens next
We will contact you to complete the process, which will include a short telephone interview with the relevant MASS Regional Co-ordinator.
How much will it cost?
Cost of Associate Membership is £250 a year. There is no initial joining fee and membership is on a rolling basis – i.e. 12 months from joining.
Please contact MASS Membership Co-ordinator, Jenny Braunton – you can email or ring her on 0117 925 9613.
