The association by and for students & alumni of the European Law School


The European Law School Network offers law students & alumni from the seven European countries Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Greece, Portugal and the Netherlands an integrated European legal education.


As an independent and non-profit association, the European Law School Students & Alumni e.V. was founded on 15 September 2011 (at that time "Alumni Network of the European Law School e.V."). It adopted a new statute and its current name on 16 December 2012.


As an association by and for students & alumni of the degree programme, we also advocate transnational cooperation within the framework of European integration.


A transnational and intergenerational network


Our aim is to build a cross-national and cross-generational network of programme students and alumni in order to promote exchange between (future) European lawyers and to create a platform for maintaining contacts.


We want to:


  • promote and maintain friendly relations between ELS alumni and current participants and create a link to the exchange programme;
  • enable ELS alumni and current students to assist each other;
  • ensure representation of students & alumni in organisations and institutions whose activities are related to the ELS.




We not only contribute to European Law School events, but also organise our own events.


These include:

  • Brown Bag Lunches: Representatives from legal professions talk about their personal careers and everyday professional life in a small group during lunch;
  • Introductory meetings for those interested in the European Law School;
  • Pub nights;
  • Alumni reunions.
