Law Committee

LawCo is UCSA’s very own legal committee, organising events related to law for students interested in this field of study.

The LawCo board from the past year consisted of 4 students, seeking to create a platform for students interested in law to come together and share their interest through the organisation of several events. These students were Ines Paredes Peiro, Claire van Gaalen, Salomé Cohen, and Ana Rautner. In the upcoming year the board will consist of Salomé Cohen, Ana Rautner, Jonathan Brouwer, and a member who will be recruited in the fall.

With the events, we hope to provide a refreshing and interdisciplinary perspective on legal academics and to introduce students to professional legal practice. Our goal is to move across the purely theoretical framework students are introduced to in class and explore the more practical side of the law. To achieve this goal, we organise excursions to the hotspots of legal practice in the Netherlands, such as the International Court of Justice (ICJ), International Criminal Court (ICC), and well-known legal firms, like Jones Day and Houthoff. Speakers at our lectures are experts in various legal fields and will provide students with the opportunity to enter a critical discussion. However, our events are open to people with all levels of knowledge, whether you are pursuing the double law degree program, just taking one or two classes, or are simply a Suits fanatic – you are welcome. Interested? Join our Facebook page “Law Committee UCSA” for regular updates on the agenda or send us an email to become a member of our mailing list. We hope to see you at our events!
