Institutional membership of the European Society of International Law is open to any organisation interested in contributing to the realisation of the goals of the society. There are two tiers of membership – Premium and Standard  – which vary in their cost and the advertising opportunities that they offer. Institutional membership is usually taken up by academic publishers and law schools or other similar non-profit institutions, e.g. research institutes. The society would be happy to consider tailor-made solutions, in terms of advertising and otherwise, for law firms, corporations or other similar institutions who express an interest in sponsoring the society’s work.

Please follow these three simple steps to become an institutional member or to renew your institutional membership for the year 2023:

1. Consult the 2024 brochure for institutional members.

2. Fill in the Institutional Membership form (2024)

3. Send it back to the ESIL Secretariat and then arrange to pay the membership fee.


If you have any questions at all about ESIL institutional membership at any time, please contact the ESIL Secretariat.
