Today, 4th of May 2020, marks the 39th birthday of ELSA ! In 1981, five law students from Austria, Hungary, Poland, and West Germany saw the need to promote international cooperation and mutual understanding among law students on both West and East Europe. ELSA was born and the first office was established in 1984.
If you are looking for an interesting website to visit during those challenging times you may be interested by the following : breaking.through, founded in 2018, publishes portraits of successful female legal professionals in personal interviews on its website. We aim to encourage young female lawyers to be ambitious and pursue the career of their dreams despite the oftentimes still fundamental lack of suitable role models. Since April 2020, breaking.through is now also established with its very own Swiss branch on www.breakingthrough.ch
The Spring NCM of ELSA Switzerland will be held online on the 9th of May 2020.

The Swiss legal platform LAWBRARY.ch is a fantastic time-saver.
It provides intelligent hyperlinks between laws and finally lets you work on them individually: Switch back and forth between laws efficiently using the cross-references and save tiresome research thanks to the Preview function, add personal notes to your law and highlight passages of interest with your virtual highlighter. And that’s just the beginning. You’ll soon be able to find relevant legal publications exactly where they make sense: right next to the article of the relevant statute. Have a look at LAWBRARY.ch and discover the LAWBRARY legal world.
