Have you started something during the coronacrisis to help others? Big, or very small? The Amsterdam Law Hub wants to seek out and reward you with 500 EUR, as an encouragement to keep up the good work!

The coronavirus, even though 0,000 000 02 meters small, has its impact on many aspects of our society as we know it. It has already caused half a million cases worldwide, and even thousands of deaths. It will probably make its mark for years to come, or in some parts even permanently. 

This impact requires a huge level of adaptation from us human beings. You are already doing an excellent job if you keep following the rules of staying at home as much as possible, washing your hands often and keeping your distance from others. But some of you like to pursue new creative ways of thinking to help the parts of society that have felt the impact the most. The Amsterdam Law Hub wants to stimulate these creative endeavors.
