SBA – The Solicitors Charity

SBA The Solicitors’ Charity has been at the heart of the legal profession for over 150 years, helping to ensure that no solicitor is unsupported in times of need or crisis. The charity was founded in 1856, when three solicitors secured a motion from the Liverpool meeting of the Metropolitan & Provincial Law Association to begin drafting its constitution. That process, painstakingly recorded through the pages of the Solicitors Journal & Reporter, took two years and the Solicitors Benevolent Association – now known as SBA The Solicitors’ Charity – was officially born in 1858.
