For the first time in 10 days there is no one at the OC Desk. We are all dead-tired but it has been the most amazing time we had. Despite the lack of sleep, the stress and the worry it was all worth it. Nothing would have beeb possible without the most amazing team I could have asked for. We hope that you all had a good time, that you had fun and that you have gone back home with memories as beautiful as ours.

Dear Alumni and ELS,

Please find enclosed the Alumni and ELS programme for ICM Cluj-Napoca who will take place from the 19th to the 26th of April in the very heart of Transylvania. As you see, we have prepared a special programme for you from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th, but are happy to welcome you also prior to the event.

Application is open until the 27th of March and you are kindly asked to apply and submit payments individually – you don’t have to join the delegations joining the ICM from your country or the country where you are working.

Until the expiration of the application period, I will be your sole point of contact so I am hereby kindly encouraging you to address any you might have. Though, do not think that I shall be alone – I have a great team of eager and dedicated people who will ensure that your stay during the ICM - from landing/arriving by train up to the moment we say farewell – will be a pleasant one, and that you won’t have to worry about anything, but having a good time!

With your approval, we will publish the names of the applicants regularly, so that you can be updated all the time on who among your friends will be joining the ICM!

For any concerns, questions or queries do not hesitate to contact my at any time! I can be reached via phone: 004-0740-017-466 or e-mail [email protected]

Kind regards from sunny Cluj-Napoca,


Dear ELSAnians,
As you all already know, the deadline for your applications for the ICM 67 has passed.
However, if you didn't have the time to apply, we're bringing you some good news! We still have some free spots so if you're still thinking about coming to Cluj-Napoca but didn't find a spot or you didn't have time to fill in the application, now is your chance. All you have to do is contact the Head of Delegation for your country and make sure that we receive the new application until the 17th of March 23:59 CET. Until the same date you can also withdraw in case you will not be able to attend the ICM( we hope that that won't be the case for anyone). After that date, withdrawal is no longer possible.
We can't wait to welcome you all here.
Hugs from Cluj,
The OC

Dear ELSAnians,
ELS - The ELSA Lawyers Society is once again extremely generously offering the ELS Scholarship for yet another ICM, this time in Cluj-Napoca. You will find their message below:

Dear ELSA friends,

on behalf of the Executive Committee of the ELSA Lawyers Society (ELS) it is a great pleasure for me to announce the CALL FOR APPLICANTS for 4 ELS Trust Scholarships towards the participation to the Cluj- Napoca ICM.

In recent years the ELS Trust has given many ELSA members the possibility to attend ICMs as "ELS Scholars" by sponsoring their participation fee. We are happy to again offer this opportunity for the forthcoming ICM.


The ELS Trust is set up as an instrument to pursue and implement the spirit and aims of the ELSA Lawyers Society as expressed in its Statutes "..... ELS strives as an independent organisation to support ELSA..... by contributing to its positive and qualitative growth, by means of fund raising, marketing and other activities....."

In managing the Trust, ELS strives to keep update with all developments and needs of ELSA at all levels of the organisation so to pursue ELSA's best interests in the allocation of the funds, while maintaining total independence from ELSA's Council, the International, National and Local Boards and any other executive and/or legislative body.


to promote the dissemination of the principles and the spirit of ELSA and ELS amongst all law students and young lawyers by fostering the participation of ELSA members to International Council Meetings and providing financial assistance to ELSA members who show potential and determination in personally contributing to the upholding and dissemination of these ideals.


The ELS Trust offers:

4 ELS Scholarships of up to Euro 203 each in participation fees at the ICM plus the Special Package including Gala Ball,Social Programme and Sightseeing.

This means that each successful applicant (or "ELS Scholar") will have the ELS Trust pay up to Euro 203 for his/her participation fee plus the Special Package fee directly to the ICM Organising Committee.

Unfortunately the ELS Trust cannot provide for travel expenses, which will have to be taken care for by the successful applicants themselves.

No more than 2 scholarships may be awarded to one same country.


1. Deadline for submitting Scholarship Applications to ELS is March 14th as per ICM application;
2. Announcement of results approx. 10 days after;
3. ELS Trust pays up to Euro 203 in participation fee plus special package
fee for each "ELS Scholar" directly to ICM Organising Committee;


When applying for the ELS Scholarship do not forget to also apply for participation to the ICM with the ICM OC.

You are required to follow all instructions set out by the ICM OC.

As an applicant for the ELS Scholarship, the OC of the ICM will put your ICM application on "HOLD" status. This is an exception to the general rule that once you apply to the ICM you are obliged to pay the participation fee whether you actually participate or not. "HOLD” means that in case your scholarship application is rejected by ELS - and you are not able to participate to the ICM after all - you will NOT remain obliged to pay the participation fee to the ICM OC.

This is valid under the following conditions:

1. You inform the ICM OC in writing that you are also applying for the ELS Scholarship;
2. your ICM application is made according to all requirements set out by the ICM OC;
3. the "Hold" status will last only until the results of the ELS Scholarship are announced;
4. after this date those who had their ELS scholarship application rejected must immediately inform the ICM OC on whether they intend to participate after all.
If they do not inform the OC of such intention their application will be considered canceled.


members from ELSA Member Countries, Observer countries or prospective National Groups (i.e. ELSA contacts in the process of becoming ELSA members) may apply.

Send an email to:

Pierangelo T. Graziani E-mail: [email protected]
Executive Officer ELS Trust
ELSA Lawyers Society

state your name, address, telephone, and email and state the arguments in favour of your candidature.

For your information some of the INDICATORS we will be watching in the decision making process include but are not limited to:

1. economic and social situation of applicant's country of origin
2. financial situation of the applicant, of his/her Local and/or National ELSA Group
3. availability of financial aid
4. past participation at ICM of applicant personally and/or of his National Group --(N.B. this is neither a "plus" or "minus", but serves together with the rest of the information to give an idea of the National ELSA group.)
5. growth potential of the ELSA National and/or Local Group
6. applicant's willingness to personally contribute to the upholding and dissemination of the ideals of ELSA and ELS

The managing Body of the ELS Trust, while remaining independent from ELSA, will strive to have all necessary input from ELSA at all levels and especially, besides the applicants themselves, from ELSA International and the ICM Organising Committee.


ELS Scholarships are not intended as "gifts" but as "investments" in individuals who are expected to do their best for ELSA. Therefore the ELS Scholar:

1. Is expected to make the best of the Council Meeting experience, actively participating in Plenary, Workshops, Conferences and any other working event as planned by the ICM Programme. Actively participating in the Social Programme is a desirable plus.

2. Within 6 weeks after the end of the ICM he/she will write a report to ELSA addressing his/her Experience at the ICM and plans for developing ELSA in his/her Country

NOTE: The report is a very valuable tool for ELS in monitoring how the ELS Trust contributes to ELSA and in evaluating how to best allocate its resources in ELSA's interest. Therefore ELS expects all ELS Scholars to take this requirement seriously and reserves the right to take actions against those Scholars who should not perform this essential requirement in the agreed manner.

For any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to receiving your applications,


Pierangelo T. Graziani
Executive Officer ELS Trust
ELSA Lawyers Society
