The Europa-Institut at Saarland University is the second oldest institution of its kind in Europe. For 70 years, the Europa-Institut has been excellently educating young academics from all over the world in European and international law.

For more than four decades the institute, which is located at the axis of Strasbourg-Luxembourg-Brussels, has offered an internationally renowned Master's degree in European and international law. Since then, more than 5,000 students from all over the worldhave graduated from the program and now hold positions in European and international organizations, internationally oriented law firms, international companies as well as in national governments and administrations.

25 years EVER e.V.

The Europa-Institut alumni association EVER e.V. is responsible for maintaining contact with alumni of the Master's program at the Europa-Institut. Through numerous events, an international network of alumni is being established which allows for information exchange beyond the duration of the program. Regular meetings between alumni of the program are organized in various European cities to exchange memories and to form new contacts as well as to maintain old ones.

EVER was founded in 1996 by students of the Europa-Institut and incorporated as an association in 2002 (EVER e.V.). The number of members has been increasing continuously over the years: approximately half of the members live in Germany, whilst the other half is based abroad both within and outside of Europe, in countries around the globe. EVER members profit from access to an international network spanning the whole world and this enables alumni to stay in contact with each other and the Europa-Institut after their graduation.
