The ELI Valuing the Opinions of Young Lawyers


ELI and ELSA International Presidents exchange ideas at a meeting that took place on 23 October 2018 in Brussels (Belgium).

The European Law Students Association (ELSA) is the largest independent law students association, representing 50.000 students and covering 375 law faculties by 44 national groups across Europe.

On 23 October 2018, ELI President Christiane Wendehorst had a fruitful meeting with the new ELSA International President, Filipe Machado in Brussels. The pair discussed possible ways through which the ELI could involve the younger generation in its activities. With ELSA International now increasingly focusing on human rights and with it being keen to focus more on digitalisation in future, this opened the opportunity for President Wendehorst to detail various ELI projects on the above themes.
