The European Law Institute, founded in June 2011 as an entirely independent organisation, aims to improve the quality of European law, understood in the broadest sense. It seeks to initiate, conduct and facilitate research, to make recommendations, and to provide practical guidance in the field of European legal development.

The Institute has high ambitions, reflected in its Manifesto and in its Articles of Association. It will study and stimulate European legal development in a global context. That should be taken to include, but by no means be limited to, the development of European law by the European Union and the Council of Europe.

Former Member of the European Parliament Diana Wallis was elected as the new President of the European Law Institute on 6 September 2013. She succeeds Sir Francis Jacobs as the head of the Institute. Her statement of acceptance can be found here.
