ELSA (The European Law Students' Association) is the world's largest independent law students’ association. It is an international, independent, non-political, non-profit-making organisation run by and for students who are interested in law and have demonstrated commitment to international issues.
As a law students’ organisation, ELSA Malta aims to provide its members with multiple opportunities for academic enrichment and appreciates the importance of a practical approach to the study of law. In furtherance of this, ELSA Malta organises seminars, conferences and debates on current local and international legal issues; moot courts; essay competitions, trivia quizzes, and provides the opportunity to carry out research and submit legal pieces for publication in ElSA Malta’s Law Review.
ELSA Malta utilises its international network of more than 200 law faculties in 35 countries across Europe, with membership in excess of 30,000 students and young lawyers. This provides local students an array of opportunities on the international plane, ranging from summer law schools on a variety of topics to traineeships with some of the most prestigious names in the field.
Recognising the value of a holistic approach to one’s University experience, ELSA Malta injects its calendar of events with a number of social gatherings for which it is renowned.
