Dr Veronica Ruiz Abou-Nigm chairs first ELFA-ELI European Jurist project meeting

The first meeting of the European Law Faculties Association (ELFA)- European Law Institute (ELI) European Jurist Project took place on Friday 21 September. Organised and chaired by Edinburgh Law School’s Dr Veronica Ruiz Abou-Nigm, the meeting was hosted at the Société de Législation Comparée and at the Cour de Cassation, in Paris, France.

The European Jurist initiative aims at generating a hub to develop mechanisms enabling further Europeanisation of the legal profession.

This initial meeting bought together participants from institutions across Europe to share their experience of internationalisation of legal education and their ideas and motivations in relation to the project. The next meeting is expected to take place in January 2019 in Toulouse (France).
