2019 will see the launch of “Fiscal Transparency”, a new research programme at the University of Amsterdam’s Amsterdam Law School. The programme will be administered under the aegis of the Amsterdam Centre for Tax Law (ACTL) and owes its inception to Prof. Dr Jan Van de Streek and PhD researcher Martijn Nouwen.
The NWO research project Judges in Utopia focuses on the role of the judiciary in the development of private law in the European Union, especially the interaction between the civil-law judiciary and the Court of Justice of the European Union. In addition to information on research projects, publications and scheduled events, the new website is also home to a blog with actual affairs.
The Amsterdam Law School has received a donation for the establishment of an Information Law and Policy Lab. At the Lab, selected master students will learn to apply their knowledge of information law for the public interest. The Lab will be affiliated to IViR, and the activities will build on IViR research.
Our education and research are shaped by projects that engage with society at large: the Amsterdam Law Hub, the Amsterdam Law Practice, the Amsterdam Law Clinic, and the impact and innovative nature of our research.
The Amsterdam Law Hub is a breeding ground for innovation in the field of social legal services. The Faculty’s students and staff work together with social partners, legal entrepreneurs and established partners in legal practice.
