The students studying in the international master’s programmes are welcome to join Pykälä as regular members. The members of Pykälä are also automatically student members of The Association of Finnish Lawyers. To join you should fill the application form here. (we’re sorry it’s only in Finnish at the moment!)
The membership fee is 35 € for the whole duration of your studies and it should be paid at the Pykälä office. When you pay the fee you also get the Pykälä membership sticker, with which you can prove that you are, in fact, a member of Pykälä.
