Amsterdam Law Hub

The Amsterdam Law Hub is led by a team specialised in legal and justice innovation, technology, entrepreneurship, communication and networking. In addition, we work closely with colleagues from the Faculty of Law, and co-workers and partners of the Hub.

“Success is not dependent on an idea. It is dependent on how that idea fits within, and is supported by, an ecosystem. At the Law Hub it is my mission to ensure that the bridge between ideas and ecosystems thrives.”

"I believe in the power of vocabulary, because words set you thinking and teach you to look at the world differently. By combining my stories with art, at the Law Hub I strive for new perspectives on a more legal system.”

"There are many people in vulnerable situations in the Netherlands who do not receive legal help. It is my mission to improve access to justice, especially for women."

"Like access to medical care, everyone should also have access to solutions to legal problems. Justice as a commons, that's what I'm going for."

"Law can only remain relevant if it grows with society. I hope to offer the Law Hub support to achieve this growth."

Partnership and mentor network

In addition to the permanent team, the Amsterdam Law Hub has developed a network of partners and mentors, both internally at the University and in the general public.
