Faculty of Law

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

This year again, DOPE will be represented at the FDR for the faculty council elections. We,the five candidates, are committed to the interests of our fellow students. We aim toincorporate (more individual) feedback after assessments. The present system does not offerenough feedback for students to develop themselves academically. We intend to solve thisissue by persuading the faculty staff of the importance of individual feedback.Secondly, many students have to purchase new expensive books every semester, rightfullyso, perceived as a burden. Therefore, we want to look at ways to reduce the high costsassociated with purchasing literature. We want to investigate whether there are moreoptions for refurbishing books and a central system in cooperation with the library.Thirdly, we would like to optimize students' mental health by providing them with morepersonal counselling. Especially during the current pandemic, the mental health of thestudents has become of great concern. The faculty's current initiatives to provide this helphave become inadequate in meeting the student's needs. We strive to make the help morepersonal and thereby more effective. Furthermore, the current pandemic leaves us with fartoo little study space, particularly for group projects. Unused classrooms should be openedup and transformed into study space. This will grant students the opportunity to discuss andwork together to utilize the methods of PBL fully. We are also focused on enhancing theguidance of the tutors. Students have expressed their concerns that they feel as if sometutors are not on the same level of professionality as other tutors when it comes to students'proper tutoring and guidance. Lastly, we want to improve the communication between thefaculty and students. For example, sudden adjustments close to a deadline cause muchagitation among students. We want to enlighten the faculty on this issue to make theirorganization run more smoothly.As we’ve said, we are committed to the interests ofstudents and we will work very hard to turn these points into reality. However, this can onlybe done with your vote. We hope that we’ve convinced you to vote for us as DOPE for abetter faculty and a better tomorrow!
