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 skills, acquire new skills and meet fellow students and legal professionals throughout Europe.
ELSA was founded ELSA in 1981. Today ELSA is the world's largest independent law students association and it is represented at more than 300 law faculties in 42 countries across Europe with membership in excess of 35 000 students and young lawyers.
