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 Institue 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 the European Law by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
Academic/educational institution, Non-governmental organisation (NGO)
An internship at the Secretariat of the European Law Institute (ELI) is the perfect opportunity for a candidate with a completed law degree or a student in the final stages of his/her legal studies (or a closely related field) to gain insight into the management of an international organisation which works towards the improvement of law-making across Europe.
Interns will have the opportunity to work with staff at the Secretariat on a number of tasks, including the organisation and running of the Annual Conference and Meetings, which takes place in Budapest (Hungary) from 9–11 September 2020. The Conference brings together around 400 participants and will be attended by renowned legal experts from Europe and beyond.
