Law 2022 annual review

We are very pleased to present to you a short overview of last year's activities in the field of education, research and our faculty as a whole.

In our new story of science series, we pay attention to the concept of Intersectional Discrimination, subject of Nozizwe Dube's Ph.D research. Furthermore, prof. Jacques Claesssen and Prof. Eric van de Luijtgaarden explain in an in-depth interview the similarities between Restorative and Preventive Justice and the need to ‘retrain’ lawyers. And assistant professor in Criminal Law and Criminology Robin Hofmann talks about 'the ifs, ands, and buts of cannabis legalisation'. Finally, in a number of showcases, we focus on recent developments, events and special achievements of our teaching and research activities.
