The General Assembly of the European Lawyer’s Union, composed of all members with dues in order, convenes every year. The General Assembly decides on the general activities and objectives of the association and elects the members of the Executive Committee.

The Executive Committee is composed of 27 members, elected for a three-year term, as well as by former presidents of the UAE, who are ex officio members (please see a list of the past presidents of the UAE here). The Executive Committee meets at least twice a year, usually coinciding with the Congress and the General Assembly, and elects within its members a Board for a term of two years.

The Board is responsible for the daily management of the association and is headed by the President, who represents the association, directs it work and presides over the meetings of the Executive Committee. The present Board was elected in November 2016 and is headed by Agustín CRUZ NUÑEZ from Málaga, Spain.

The UAE is structured in regional and national delegations and in commissions specialised in a given area of law. The delegations and commissions regularly organise conferences, seminars and other events, and play a significant role in the life of national and regional communities. The work of delegations and commissions is coordinated by Paola TARCHINI from Milan, Italy.

The Public Relations Committee assists the Board and the members organising the Association’s events regarding the logistical organisation and publicising of events and more generally the communication of the UAE. The Public Relations Committee is headed by Pierluigi VASILE from Pescara, Italy.
