The association by and for students of the European Law School

 

The European Law School Network offers law students 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. (at that time "Alumni Network of the European Law School e.V.") was founded on 15 September 2011 and adopted a new statute and name on 16 December 2012.

 

As an association by and for students 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 in a variety of life situations;
  • ensure representation of students in organisations and institutions whose activities are related to the ELS or career paths based on it.

 


Events

 

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

 

These include:

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