How the ILAE works

  • ILAE has national chapters in more than 150 countries and territories with over 26,000 health care members. Each national chapter has elected officers and members who are doctors and other health care professionals interested in epilepsy.
  • ILAE has an Executive Committee: President, Vice President, Secretary-General, Treasurer, and the Immediate Past President, and the Chairs of each of the recognized ILAE regions as voting members for four-year terms. The Chairs of each of the five Councils are also represented on the Executive Committee.
  • ILAE has offices in Dublin, Ireland and Texas, USA.
  • ILAE publishes three journals:
    • Epilepsia, which is the leading, most authoritative source for current clinical and research results on all aspects of epilepsy
    • Epileptic Disorders, the League's educational journal
    • Epilepsia Open, an open-access publication forum for early, preliminary studies on epilepsy
  • ILAE publishes a membership newsletter, Epigraph.
