ELSA Leeds proudly organised the XXI National Council Meeting of ELSA United Kingdom from 8th to 10th November 2019. We welcomed almost 100 ELSA officers to the University of Leeds, including international guests from France, Germany and the Netherlands. The weekend was filled with stimulating workshop discussions, efficient plenaries, networking and socialising opportunities. The weekend was a great success and our effort put into the organisation of the XXI NCM Leeds has recently been recognised by our national network who have voted the NCM Leeds as the best ELSA event in 2019/2020.

In Professor Iyiola Solanke’s words “it will be a great chance to try to establish at University of Leeds an environment for rational and reasonable debate and discussion on the challenges and opportunities for the future relationship between the EU and the UK”.
