ELSA, The European Law Students' Association, as the world’s biggest of its kind, offers law students, barristers and young lawyers the opportunity to be active and to educate themselves beyond the classic university's curriculum. Mutual understanding of European cultures and people, the education of lawyers with social and intercultural competence, academic work and practical relevance are the keystones of ELSA's self-image.
ELSA has become a valuable addition to numerous university's academic curriculum through its academic, practically relevant activities including abroad experience, co-existing to ordinary legal education. Besides that, ELSA offers a unique chance to strengthen one's skills in international communication, project organisation and soft skills.
Taking part in the biggest Civil Law Moot Court in German-speaking countries, travelling to Law Schools and Conference abroad, taking part in English-speaking competitions or getting in contact with students from universities all around Europa – ELSA enriches your studies!
