ELSA Ireland is a non-political and non-profit organisation which strives to inspire and connect law students through social, academic, and professional opportunities.


We are currently comprised of 5 Local Groups making us Ireland’s largest intercollegiate law society.


ELSA Ireland shares the purpose, vision, and fundamental principles of our parent organisation: ELSA.


We are growing rapidly as a network and continually offer new events and programmes on the local, national and international levels.

Honorary Members

From time to time, ELSA Ireland may award honorary membership to an individual who has contributed greatly to the society. ELSA Ireland feels that these individuals fully reflect the values we strive to uphold.

Professor Michael Doherty (LL.B TCD, LL.M Cantab., BL), Head of Maynooth University Department of Law, was awarded honorary membership of ELSA Ireland on 29 January 2016. Professor Doherty has
consistently offered his support to ELSA Ireland in recent years. His guidance and generosity have ensured that hundreds of Irish and European law students could take advantage of the unique opportunities available through ELSA.
