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.

We are in the process of planning a series of exciting events for the autumn. More information to follow shortly. In the meantime, please put these dates in your diaries:

*  A seminar on "Freedom of Movement after Brexit”, planned for Tuesday 6 November at 6.30 pm at City University, London, speakers to be confirmed.
*  Our Student Evening on Tuesday 20 November.
*  Our Annual Lecture, to be delivered by Sir Martin Donnelly, on Tuesday 4 December at 6.30 pm at King’s College London, Strand campus. 




The UK Association for European Law is looking for three new Student Representatives from now until September 2019.


What you get:


Our Student Reps are encouraged to take an active part and have a say in our organisation. They get free UKAEL membership and free entry to all our events. They are invited to our AGM and Committee Meetings. They get the opportunity to discuss EU Law with leading academics and practitioners, to network, and to flesh out their CV.


What we ask in return: 


We usually hold 4-5 events a year where help is needed with registration, passing microphones during Q&Q sessions, simple IT help with setting up slides etc. For the remainder of this year we have panned the following:


*  A seminar on "Freedom of Movement after Brexit”, on Tuesday 6 Novemberat 6.30 pm at City University, London.


*  Our Student Evening on Tuesday 20 November, to be held at Freshfields.


*  Our Annual Lecture, to be delivered by Sir Martin Donnelly, on Tuesday 4 Decemberat 6.30 pm at King’s College London, Strand campus. This is also the date of our Committee Meeting and AGM, Drinks Reception and Formal Dinner. As this is the busiest day in our calendar, it is of vital importance that you are available from about 3 – 7.30 pm.
