ECLAN was established by Anne Weyembergh and Serge de Biolley in 2004. The network's activities kicked off on 1 December 2004 . ECLAN's first two years were co-financed by the European Commission (Agis and Criminal Justice Programme) and Luxembourg's Ministry of Justice.

Today, the ECLAN network covers 32 countries, including the 28 Member States of the EU and 4 non-EU countries (Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Bosnia Herzegovina). It brings together almost 200 researchers and academics specializing in EU criminal law.

ECLAN's structure relies on different internal organs: Contact Points, Members, Management Committe, Coordinators, ECLAN Team, Observers and Advisory Board.

One Contact Point represents each Member State within the network. A Contact Point is a well-known academic appointed by ECLAN to act as intermediary between the network and other academics and researchers of the Member State they represent. ECLAN counts today with 32 Contact Points, which meet at least once a year in ECLAN's annual meeting.
