40 Years of ELSA – By ELSA Alumni – Interest

Dear ELSA Alumni,

As you have been informed earlier we are organizing an event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of ELSA. The scheduled dates are 11 to 13 June 2021 and is to be held in Vienna. The city where ELSA was founded in 1981. The programme is not set in stone yet, but at least a Conference on the Rule of Law and, if possible, a Gala Ball in one of the prestigious halls of Vienna is foreseen.

The event will take place under the patronage of the president of the Republic of Austria, Prof. Dr. Alexander van der Bellen. Moreover, former ELSA-member and Austria´s current minister of Justice, Dr. Alma Zadić and the minister of European Affairs, Mrs. Karoline Edtstadler, will participate in the conference.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic that is currently upon us, the event will be held in accordance with all relevant rules and regulations applicable in Vienna at the time. The OC is assessing regularly which impediments may apply and the feasibility for attendants from all over Europe to actually visit Vienna. We are also preparing for the possibility that no physical meetings are allowed to be held exceeding a certain number of persons.

To enable the Organising Committee to better plan and organise the event, it would be helpful to understand how many participants we could more or less count on. Hence this questionnaire.

Many thanks!
