ELSA – The European Law Students' Association

ELSA is an international organisation run by and for students. ELSA has more than 50 000 members coming from over 300 faculties of law. ELSA consists of ELSA International Board, National Groups (such as ELSA Finland) and Local Groups (such as ELSA Helsinki, ELSA Joensuu, ELSA Rovaniemi and ELSA Turku).

The activities organized by ELSA are divided into three key areas: Academic Activities provides many opportunities to practice important skills and explore legal career opportunities through excursions, moot court competitions and other academic events. Seminars & Conferences organises seminars and international events that provide opportunities to network and meet fellow students in Finland and abroad.
