Using the JLA logo

Below are some guidelines for the use of the James Lind Alliance (JLA) logo.  The JLA logo is for the use of approved JLA Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs) working with a JLA Adviser.  To request a file of the logo, please email   The logo must never be recreated or altered in any way.  A reversed out version is available for use on dark backgrounds.


The JLA logo should be positioned top-left and partner logos should be positioned with equal weighting across the bottom (or where suitable). If it is not possible for the JLA logo to appear top-left, it can appear alongside other funding/supporting partners at the bottom.

Relationship statement 

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funds the infrastructure of the James Lind Alliance (JLA) to oversee the processes for Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs). PSPs aim to help patients, carers and clinicians work together to agree which are the most important evidence uncertainties affecting their particular interest, in order to influence the prioritisation of future research in that area.

Please contact with any questions. 

Exclusion zone

The exclusion zone is the area around the logotype that should always be kept clear. To ensure that the JLA logo remains clear, nothing should ever appear inside the exclusion zone, which is 8.5mm, and no other graphic or typography should appear in this area. For example:
