Amsterdam Law Hub
Joining forces with students and staff
Groups with a social purpose collaborate with students and staff in the Amsterdam Law Hub. Together they pursue the development of the law and the fulfilment of other social objectives, e.g. by means of strategic litigation.
The social legal partners of the Amsterdam Law Hub are:
Lawyers for Lawyers is an organisation that stands up for lawyers under attack, thereby helping them fulfil their duty as defenders of the rule of law freely and independently in order to prevent or bring an end to the persecution of lawyers.
The Public Interest Litigation Project (PILP), which is part of the Dutch Section of the International Commission of Jurists (NJCM) explores the possibilities of strategic litigation in the field of human rights in the Netherlands.
Pro Bono Connect is the intermediary par excellence in the Netherlands between socially conscious organisations and lawyers willing and able to provide them with legal advice on a pro bono basis.
Bureau Clara Wichmann strives to improve the social and legal circumstances of women in the Netherlands by promoting and influencing the law, legal practice, laws and regulations, and the application thereof.
Arbeidsmarktresearch (ARR) – which translates as “labour market research” – is part of the UvA and affiliated with the Department of Labour Law at the Amsterdam Law School. The director of ARR is Prof. Dr Evert Verhulp.
