The UKAEL brings together all those across the UK with an interest in European Union law.

Through lectures, conferences and other events it promotes a better understanding of EU law, encourages debate and discussion on current issues, and as the UK branch of FIDE, is part of an international network of European law associations.

UKAEL is hosting a series of exciting new events for autumn and winter 2017.

On Wednesday 18 October we are holding our popular Student Evening, kindly sponsored by Hogan Lovells.

On Thursday 16 November we have arranged a Seminar on "The Withdrawal Bill - Progress and Prospects” at King’s College London.

Thursday 14 December is the date of our AGM and Annual Lecture which will be followed as usual by a drinks reception and formal dinner. Our speaker will be Sir Jonathan Faull. 

Details on how to secure your place, exact timings etc. will be published in due course; in the meantime, please save the dates!
