What is BILA?

BILA is a unique organisation, its membership being drawn from insurers, insurance brokers and other intermediaries, academic lawyers, solicitors and barristers. 

In addition to UK members, there are many from all over the world. BILA is not only a domestic organisation, it is also the British Chapter of Association Internationale de Droit des Assurances (AIDA) and is an active participant in all the activities of AIDA including its quadrennial world congress.



Given the current situation relating to the coronavirus, we have decided not to go ahead with Paul Reed QC’s lecture this coming Monday, 16th March. We will aim to put it on later in the year. We hope you will understand and please accept our apologies for disappointment and for any inconvenience caused.

BILA is the UK National Section of AIDA and an active national member of AIDA Europe.

The BILA Journal

The BILA Journal (“Journal”) is the official journal of the Association. The Journal was first launched in 1964 and has been published regularly since then.
