ELSA visited the Federal Criminal Court

A group of ELSAnians made a trip to Bellinzona and went to see a trial.

This Wednesday a group of ELSA members from all over Switzerland spent a interesting and sunny day in Bellinzona. In the morning we visited the Federal Criminal Court, where we planned to attend a trial. However, one of the defendants stayed in Mallorca instead of travelling to Ticino. Therefore we got a first hand insight in the functioning of the Swiss Criminal Procedure Code and it's defendant's rights, the trial was postponed. Instead, we had an tour around the amazing court building and an informative and interesting question round with one of the court's judges. We had no afternoon program because of the cancellation of the trial, so most of us went spontaneously on a sightseeing trip first in Bellinzona and after in Lugano, where we enjoyed the windy, but really sunny weather.

Depending on the new date of the trial, ELSA will most likely organize a second trip to the Federal Criminal Court again, just this time only for the trial itself

The ELSA Law Schools are taking place in summer and winter all over Europe. They last between 7 and 14 days and are dedicated to a specific law topic. Besides legal education, the program contains also cultural and social activities. More information

UBS Switzerland AG – Lawyers, notaries and fiduciaries


The financial boutique for attorneys


Attorneys often maintain account relationships with a bank on three levels: as private clients, as law firms, or as representatives of their clients. However, this does not mean that they have to deal with three different relationship managers at the bank. UBS’s LNF desks offer a “single point of entry” for all their needs.


Why do we support ELSA? 


In addition to our client consultancy expertise, we strive to establish lifelong partnerships with our clients. Our strategic partnership with ELSA Switzerland is a further step underlining these values and a worthwhile investment in your future career. We want to establish early on the basis for lifelong collaboration.


UBS is happy to offer a special banking package for students (UBS Campus) which grants you free access to all daily banking services.
