ELF is a foundation (“stichting”), which is registered in the Netherlands as a public benefit organisation (ANBI – Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling). Pursuing its mission, ELF implements two kinds of projects: EU based projects, and projects implemented outside the EU. At European level, ELF works in three areas: training of lawyers, e-Justice projects, and research on EU law and legal practice. The projects implemented outside the EU fall within one of the following categories: rule of law (and human rights), international trade in legal services, and Bar issues.
