We are the Pharmacy Law & Ethics Association

About Us

Who we are

The current chair of PLEA is David Reissner. David is a solicitor who retired from Charles Russell Speechlys in 2018 after 40 years with the firm, specialising in pharmacy law. He is co-editor of Dale & Appelbe's Pharmacy and Medicines Law. He was appointed a Deputy District Judge in 2000.

PLEA was first established at a meeting of interested pharmacists at the Waterloo Novotel in 1997; Professor Joy Wingfield was voted as the founding chair with Dr Gordon Appelbe as secretary and treasurer. Since that time, PLEA has held an annual seminar and occasional sessions in association with other pharmacy conferences and events. PLEA is part of the partnership network of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

What we do

PLEA aims to bring together like-minded people with an interest in pharmacy law and ethics. We maintain a public facing website to promote the aims of PLEA, to recruit new members and to carry a news function of selected developments in pharmacy law and ethics

For members, we offer additional benefits including the following:
