Our Faculty is a member of ELFA, which is the European Law Faculties Association (http://www.elfa-afde.net/), which is the representative organ of faculties of law across Europe. Founded in Leuven, Belgium, in 1995 by some eighty law faculties, today it has 160 members from universities of the EU and from non-EU European countries. ELFA coordinates faculty initiatives in the field of the education of law, postgraduate legal education and issues related to the mobility of instructors and students.
