Do you agree that legal procedures could be clearer, simpler, but above all fairer? Do you think that judicial solutions should be examined for a better society? And would you like to stimulate that change yourself?

Then we have good news for you: our master's course Justice Entrepreneurship will start again during the second semester, in which you can participate. 

Become a Justice Entrepreneur

By following this elective course, you will be helped to design and build solutions to justice and legal issues. By applying the Design Thinking methodology to the justice sector, you dive into the real problems and needs of citizens and other actors in society who need innovative solutions. You will find out how to get to know stakeholders, how to (re)define problems and develop a prototype of a brand new legal or judicial service. You take your first step towards your own company or organisation or in short: you develop entrepreneurial skills and will become a Justice Entrepreneur!

Some of the reactions of students

The most interesting is that we learn and think from a different perspective about laws than we used to in law schools. I learned how to build up an idea and learned a lot of practical skills.
It's a special experience for me to further open my mind, since I tend to concentrate on reasonability and feasibility of my ideas, and seldom have had such an opportunity to imagine as far as possible.
It was the nicest and final course I had in University, so it was a great way to end my masters.
