The Legal Research Group is a network wide project of ELSA that aims to make a real impact on the legal world through legal research. Our members, divided into national groups, are asked to research specific questions with the aim to compile a national report to allow for international comparison.

The whole project organized in partnership with respected organisations, amongst others the Council of Europe, and academics will conclude each year the compilation of a final publication that aims to provide a comparative perspective to a hot legal topic.

This publication will be presented at the closing conference and could serve as the basis for further legal research throughout the world.

Each participant will receive a certificate of participation, a mention in an international legal research publication and a stepping stone to become a speaker at international conferences.

The European Law Students’ Association (ELSA) is an international, independent, non-political, non-profit making organisation run by and for students and recent graduates, who are interested in achieving academic and personal excellence in addition to their legal or law-related studies at university.
