“ELFA is one of the best examples of success in international legal training cooperation. For 25 years their members have been working in a joint project to improve the preparation of future European generations of jurists. Congratulations to all the institutions involved in this always updating purpose! Together we contribute to offer better legal training for the needs of our changing world.” Josep Maria de Dios Marcer Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona ELFA President, 2017-2018
“The European Law Faculties Association has been an excellent forum for law professors, mostly deans or “dekans" not only from Europe but from all around the world, to discuss problems facing law faculties, ranging from admissions policies to various teaching methods, curriculum, cooperation projects or joint research. Now, 25 years after the foundation of ELFA, and in the extraordinary circumstances we are currently living, we can recall what was stated in the 2015 Istanbul Conference Resolution, that law faculties in Europe and elsewhere find themselves at the crossroads of directions for their future development to respond [...]
“Since the first time I participated in Graz in 2005, I have attended all of the ELFA General Conferences to date. ELFA was then a relatively young organization, but its function was already proving to be relevant in the process of implementation of the European Higher Education Area. Nevertheless, after the culmination of this process, ELFA has also continued to offer great advantages to its members, providing a privileged forum for reflection, debate and exchange of knowledge, information, experiences and contacts, personal and institutional, on a European scale that responds perfectly to the phenomena of increasing [...]
“Many congratulations on the first 25 years of excellent work for the Law Faculties of Europe. ELFA promotes a widening of perspectives and increased cooperation; it encourages Law Faculties to work together to address common issues and stimulates academics to develop new initiatives and networks. With the success of the annual ELFA Thesis Award, ELFA also stimulates and rewards excellent research. Ad multis annos!” Laurence Gormley University of Groningen ELFA President, 2015-2016
“In the first 25 years of its existence ELFA brought about a new quality in legal studies across Europe. Celebrating its anniversary we look forward to further achievements of ELFA in the coming years.” Janez Kranjc University of Ljubljana ELFA President, 2009-2010
“In 25 years, ELFA has managed to bring around the same table of discussion heads of faculties of law across Europe in an unprecedented exchange of ideas and analysis of the structural changes that have affected the law curriculum throughout Europe. Fostering solutions that can be implemented by individual leaders in their home faculty and national university institutions has certainly been one of the main achievement of ELFA. I hope that such work will continue to the benefit of us all.” Pascal Pichonnaz University of Fribourg ELFA President, 2008-2009
