From time to time ISEL (either alone or with partner organisations) hosts conferences on European law issues. In particular, ISEL co-hosts, together with its sister association the United Kingdom Association for European Law (UKAEL), a biannual conference the venue of which rotates between Ireland and the UK.
ISEL members enjoy reduced admission rates to such conferences.
Previous conferences are set out below. Where provided by speakers, material from these events is available for ISEL members to download.
