Please note that as an alumni organisation of ELSA, we normally require former or current membership to ELSA. However, if you have a different nexus to ELSA (e.g. as a participant in the Final Oral Round of EMC2) and wish to stay in touch with and support the ELSA network, please contact the President of ELS at president@elslawyer.org.


Benefit from many opportunities, including:

  • Access to our online members’ directory, with and for all of our members, including their personal and professional information;

  • Regular updates on ELS, ELSA and our members provided through our website, newsletter, facebook page and mailing-list;

  • ELS members can participate at ELS and ELSA meetings and activities throughout the year (normally at more favourable rates than Non-ELSA members;

  • ELS supports ELSA, financially and in-kind. Financial assistance involves the ELS Scholarships as well as other ad hoc purposes. In-kind support can vary, e.g. helping ELSA find sponsors, lecturers and trainers, or giving professional advice and expertise.

Membership categories and fees

A yearly membership fee of 40 € is due at the beginning of each calendar year. In the first year, members only pay a reduced fee of 20 €. Until the age of 30, students and not fully employed members are not obliged to pay a membership fee.

We also offer lifetime membership for a one-time fee of 400 €.

If you are a law student seeking membership to ELSA, The European Law Students’ Association, please contact the ELSA local group at your university. We’re the old(er) guys ;-)
