ELI Secretary General Vanessa Wilcox Speaks to Europe’s Future Lawyers at ELSA Austria’s National Council Meeting


On 6 December, ELI Secretary General attended ELSA Austria’s 64th National Council Meeting

The meeting which took place at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien) drew several ELSA Austria members. On the occasion, the ELI Secretary General informed those present about the ELI (its ambitions and unique traits as well its projects and other activities). She spoke about the various incentives open to law students/graduates, highlighting ELI’s Young Lawyers Award as an opportunity for young lawyers to get involved in ELI‘s quest to improve law-making in Europe.  Secretary General Wilcox observed that Europe’s future lies in the hands of the young generation, and that ELSA, as the largest independent law students’ association, plays an important role in fostering a new generation of jurists. As such, Secretary General Wilcox said that she was pleased with the manner in which the cooperation between ELI and both ELSA Austria and ELSA International had developed and welcomed more opportunities to uncap the creativity of younger lawyers and to facilitate the intergenerational exchange of views and ideas.
