The Society meets annually in person to establish a work-programme. The Society seeks to influence ongoing developments in legislation and jurisprudence, as well as to issue opinions on the longer term development of European copyright law.
Topics are assigned to ad-hoc committees which develop and draft each opinion and circulate it amongst the members for comment and signature. If more than half the members sign the Opinion, it has the status of an ECS opinion.
