The European Law Institute (ELI) is an independent non-profit organisation created in 2011 established to initiate, conduct and facilitate research, make recommendations and provide practical guidance in the field of European legal development. Building on the wealth of diverse legal traditions, its mission is the quest for better law-making in Europe and the enhancement of European legal integration. By its endeavours, ELI seeks to contribute to the formation of a more vigorous European legal community, integrating the achievements of the various legal cultures, endorsing the value of comparative knowledge, and taking a genuinely pan-European perspective. As such its work covers all branches of the law: substantive and procedural; private and public.
The UIHJ is a founding member of the European Law Institute (ELI). UIHJ also participates in several projects of the ELI, especially in the field of digital assets and civil procedural law.
