ELSA Belgium Law Review
The ELSA Belgium Law Review is an annual, student-edited and peer-reviewed law journal published by ELSA Belgium.
The mission of the ELSA Law Review is to create a forum for the analysis and discussion of contemporary legal issues by serving as an avenue for the ELSA Belgian network to publish its academic work. It aims to provide law students and young lawyers, as well as the wider legal profession, with a source of critical commentary that is outside the scope of the typical legal curriculum.
The first edition is planned for October 2023.

ELSA Day is part of the Annual Human Rights Campaign and was first introduced to the ELSA Network in 2012. It takes place on the last Wednesday of November, which falls on 30 November 2022. ELSA Day aims to jointly demonstrate our Human Rights commitment by providing legal education and opportunities that enable law students to be independent and critical members of society.
The general topic of the Annual Human Rights Campaign and ELSA Day is Human Rights, and any event on this topic will be appreciated. However, as the field of human rights is very diverse, the Campaign focuses on a more specific topic each year. This year’s focus will be on International Humanitarian Law (IHL).
