METRO researchers are all in one way or another involved in teaching. Courses vary from environmental law and Law & Economics to competition law. Courses are taught at Maastricht University, but many visiting professorships (in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America) have also been established. Student fellows are selected to help them develop their organizational and research skills.
The METRO Student Fellowship offers motivated students the opportunity to acquire work experience at the highest level within the areas of environmental law, torts & insurance, and law & economics and provides them with a chance to further their organizational and research skills.
Student Fellows help with the organization, preparation and coordination of a wide range of METRO related activities, such as (lunch) seminars and conferences, editing tasks, research source finding and METRO's annual report. Student fellows will also be included in all the research and social activities of the METRO institute.
Selected students receive a honorary statute and on average work for a year on a part-time basis (the hours are fixed in mutual agreement and timetables are flexible).
The METRO Seminars are monthly events that provide an academic forum in which METRO-related scholars and PhD candidates present their current research and get feedback from colleagues. The seminars are open to all members of the faculty. Please contact Niels Philipsen or Marina Jodogne in order to register or to apply for a seminar.
Activities in Asia
Representatives of METRO regularly teach courses in Asia. Furthermore, they have participated in a variety of seminars and conferences, and collaborated on books and papers, with representatives of many academic organizations throughout Asia, especially China.
