Modernising European Legal Education

Intellectual Outputs

The Intellectual Outputs are the core of the Strategic Partnership. They are the 4 outputs that will be developed and published during the project period and that will significantly support the target audience in a modern and more interactive form of legal teaching.


The survey is the IO1 within the project. The Survey aims to provide information about the status quo of the training of transversal competences at the partner faculties.


The eCourse represents the IO2 of the project. The eCourse on Scientific Skills will include two compenents in particular: Research Methods and Academic Writing. 


The Method Toolbox is the IO3 of the project and is based on the results of the Survey (IO1). There will be developed a box with explanations of transversal competences, teaching methods and examples. 


The publication “Law and beyond” is the IO4 of the MELE project and focuses on cross-cutting topics. Junior and senior researchers (Ph.D. candidates and post-docs) are invited to contribute to the publication. The call for papers will be published soon.

Last week from 26th April 2022 till 28th April 2022, the second part of the LTT1 (E-Course Academic Skills) meeting within the project of “Modernising European Legal Education” (MELE) took place in Saarbrücken. Partner lecturers, professors and also librarians from the different partner universities of the MELE network were on site and online to exchange about the academic structures of teaching within the individual law faculties, to structure an online course on Academic Skills, which should bring more support to the students in their studies. It was a very enlightening and active week, with discussions on Generation Z and Online Focus Sessions, among other topics, in order to adapt to today’s digital age also within legal education. 

We thank all participants for the numerous lively discussions and look forward to the next meeting!

Kick-Off Meeting of the MELE Project on 17.12.2020 and 18.12.2020 (online)

published 22.12.2020

On 17 and 18 December 2020, the Kick-Off Meeting of the MELE project took place. Unfortunately, a face-to-face meeting was not possible due to the Corona pandemic. However, it was a great possibility to meet the individual partners and to get to know each other a little bit better. The meeting gave the partners the opportunity to get a comprehensive overview of the MELE project and its objectives in general as well as the planned intellectual outputs. Due to the virtual implementation, it was possible to expand the circle of invited participants per partner institution so that a total of 61 participants took part in the event as representatives for the individual partners.


Modernising European Legal Education (MELE) is a project co-funded by the EU through the Erasmus+ program. It is a Strategic Partnership between a total of 9 European universities for the purpose of modernizing teaching methods in legal education.
