BIICL acts as the UK Hub of the European Law Institute


BIICL acts as the UK Hub of the European Law Institute. The UK Hub will be officially launched in autumn 2020. It aims at encouraging UK based ELI Members to participate in various ELI projects and to organise events in cooperation with the European Law Institute.

The European Law Institute

Founded in June 2011 as an entirely independent organisation, the European Law Institute (ELI) aims to improve the quality of European law, understood in the broadest sense. It seeks to initiate, conduct and facilitate research, to make recommendations, and to provide practical guidance in the field of European legal development.

The Institute has high ambitions, reflected in its Manifesto and in its Articles of Association. It will study and stimulate European legal development in a global context. That should be taken to include, but by no means be limited to, the development of European law by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
