Amsterdam Law School

Progressive and trail-blazing education and research – for stronger legal institutions, solutions to social problems, and a better and juster society

New research project Fiscal Transparancy

“Fiscal Transparency” is a new research programme at the Amsterdam Law School. It will be administered under the aegis of the Amsterdam Centre for Tax Law and owes its inception to Prof. Dr Jan Van de Streek and PhD researcher Martijn Nouwen.

New website Judges in Utopia

Judges in Utopia focuses on the role of the judiciary in the development of private law in the EU, especially the interaction between the civil-law judiciary and the Court of Justice. In addition to information on research projects, publications and scheduled events, the website also has a blog with actual affairs.

Information Law and Policy Lab

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.


We offer three Bachelor’s programmes (Dutch Law, Tax Law, and the English-language programme PPLE) and more than 20 (internationally oriented) Master’s programmes.


The research carried out at the Amsterdam Law School is highly diversified and covers legal sociology in addition to fundamental legal philosophical research.

Connecting with Society

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.
Amsterdam Law Hub
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.
