We are the Pharmacy Law & Ethics Association

Welcome to the Pharmacy Law and Ethics Association (PLEA)

PLEA is an independent, non-profit association for pharmacists who are involved in law and ethics and for lawyers or ethicists who are involved in pharmacy. We welcome pharmacists, former pharmacists and lawyers whose work or interests comprise the application of law, ethics and professionalism to pharmacy practice in all its forms, as well as academics, trainers and students in pharmacy education in the UK and elsewhere.

PLEA aims

To be a forum for the study and development of legal and ethical aspects of pharmacy practice and promote understanding of the ethical basis for professional judgment

To identify and debate legal or ethical questions raised by the developing nature of pharmacy practice

To provide informed comment, reports, or representations where appropriate, on legal and ethical issues arising in pharmacy practice

To provide educational opportunities for members and others who are interested in pharmacy law and ethics
