Prof. Rick Lawson

Dean Leiden Law School

“Society needs lawyers who know how Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg work. It is our aim to train lawyers who can find their way in the European legal order.”

“It is trite to say that ‘Europe’ has a huge impact on our daily lives. From trade to the environment, from the financial markets to judicial co-operation: the EU has assumed a central role in 21st century policy making. Meanwhile the European Court of Human Rights protects the rule of law in 47 European States.”
