About us

ELIL wurde im Juli 2016 durch den Rat der Anwaltschaften der Europäischen Gemeinschaft (CCBE) und den Deutschen Anwaltverein (DAV) gegründet. Diese Organisationen vertreten die Anwaltsvereinigungen von 32 Mitgliedsstaaten und weiteren 13 Staaten aus Europa, die entweder assoziiert sind oder Beobachterstatus innehaben, und damit mehr als 1 Millionen europäische Anwältinnen und Anwälte.

Im Oktober 2017 wurde die Europäische Lawyers in Lesvos gGmbH in Deutschland als unabhängige und gemeinnützige Gesellschaft eingetragen. Gesellschafter sind die CCBE und der DAV.

ELILs eingetragene Adresse ist Littenstraße 11, 10179 Berlin, die Registernummer lautet HRB 192296 B.

The donated funds were used to fund part of ELIL's projects in Lesvos and Samos, including the costs relating to volunteer lawyers, full-time Greek asylum lawyers and professional interpreters. 

Through our work in 2020, ELIL was able to provide free, independent legal assistance to over 1,600 people. This included supporting almost 900 individuals in relation to their asylum interview, supporting over 200 people in relation to family reunification and providing assistance to almost 200 unaccompanied children. We also assisted almost 400 people with other asylum-related legal issues.

We are extremely grateful to all who donated to enable European Lawyers in Lesvos to provide free legal assistance to asylum seekers on Lesvos. These donations were crucial in enabling ELIL to carry on its work to protect human rights and uphold the rule of law by providing asylum seekers with meaningful access to legal assistance.
