Closing Conference of the Legal Research Group

January 26 - January 29

What is the LRG?
The Legal Research Group is made of young professionals and research students who work together on a given legal theme. In 2016, ELSA Lyon was at one LRG’s initiative based on tax law optimisation of companies in Europe. The group made of members from ELSA Lyon, ELSA Portugal, ELSA Bologna and ELSA Luxembourg has now finished his work.
