Faculty of Law

Below you see an overview of the students currently representing DOPE at the Faculty of Law.

We are Caspar, Josefien, Wouter, Bente and Juliet, and we are representing DOPE in the upcoming Law Faculty Council elections which run from May 25 – 28th 2020. Even in these challenging times it is important that the voices of students are heard. We want to address your concerns and ideas and use these to improve the faculty. Firstly we would like to create more transparency, by improving communication at the Law Faculty. Secondly, to enhance academic and social qualities of students we want to diversify methods of assessment. For example, integrating essay writing, debating and presentations in as many courses as possible. Moreover, we wish to give more attention to academic writing skills by providing training and guidance.

We are also looking to maximize qualities of PBL, by tackling ssues and challenges of the PBL system. We wish to improve this by providing a better introduction to the PBL system to first year students. We believe we can take more advantage of our learning community by helping each other, that is why we want to create a supporting community for students by students. This is especially helpful for students who are struggling with transitioning from high school to university and their courses in general, and for international students who are struggling with integrating in a new learning environment. Lastly, we aim to create more places for students to study by transforming unused classrooms into study spaces. This is especially important during exam weeks, when the crowded libraries make it difficult for students to find a quiet study space.
