Our history

We began our academic journey in the academic year 1886-87 and since then, we have built a well-established reputation both for the quality of the programmes we offer and the high quality of our teaching staff and students.

Deusto ELSA

Students’ association

ELSA stands for the European Law Students' Association , which is represented by a local group on both the San Sebastian and Bilbao campuses. This is a group of law students from all degrees and years who seek to complement the legal training they receive in the classroom in a practical, dynamic and participative way. 

Its activities are twofold. At the local level, they organise conferences, mock trials or attend trials. But what sets ELSA apart from other associations is its international scope, which gives its members the opportunity to access international internships, summer schools all over Europe or to participate as an observer in international organisations.

If you want to join ELSA or get more information about the Association, you can visit its website or write to

Student representation

Student reps and deputy student reps make up the highest collegiate body of Faculty representation: the Student Council. These representatives are elected each academic year in October and November and remain in office until the elections of the following academic year.

The Faculty Student Committee also has to elect students from among student reps and deputy student reps to participate in the Faculty's governing bodies: the Faculty Council and the Faculty Senate.
