ELSA Groningen is a non-political and non-profit law students' association founded in 2013. We form a part of the grand network of ELSA (European Law Students' Association), the largest one of its kind with 50.000 members across 375 law faculties. Furthermore, we serve as the seventh of eight Dutch local groups overseen by ELSA the Netherlands, our national group with over 2.200 members. After becoming observers within ELSA the Netherlands in 2014, we officially gained full membership at the Third National Council Meeting (NCM III) in May 2016.
ELSA Groningen is operated by an executive board in collaboration with several committees. We strive to support motivated law students as they integrate into our faculty and the city, as well as throughout their professional development into future lawyers.
"A just world in which there is respect for human dignity and cultural diversity"

ELSA Groningen provides members with discounted notes, tutoring, and crash courses to get you up to speed and ready to write exams. We employ high achievers to curate the notes and courses so that you are sure to benefit.
ELSA Events range from talks, networking evenings, and drinks with professors, to institutional visits, parties, and moot courts. Keep an eye on our social media and events pages to stay updated.
Members benefit greatly from the various activities, events and academic opportunities. Not only do they receive discounts – they are also placed first in line for the flagship events and have exclusive access to our Professional Development programme.
