ELSA in general
ELSA (The European Law Students’ Association) is an international, independent, non-political, nonprofit organisation run by and for students. It is comprised of students and recent graduates who are interested in academic and personal excellence in addition to their studies at their universities. ELSA offers law students a perfect platform to develop their existing legal and soft skills, acquire new skills and meet fellow students and legal professionals throughout Europe.
Five law students from Austria, Hungary, Poland and West Germany founded ELSA in 1981. Today ELSA is the world’s largest independent law students association and it is represented at nearly 300 law faculties in 43 countries across Europe with membership in excess of 40 000 students and young lawyers.
ELSA-activities comprise a large variety of academic and professional events and projects that are organised to fulfil the vision of ELSA and in order to provide our members opportunities to enhance their skills and to interact with each other. Furthermore ELSA provides law students opportunities to develop their skills through our traineeship programme as well as through our publications. Finally working in the ELSA Network prepares active members of ELSA for their professional life through international experience gained through the association.
