Final call for applicants for our pioneering MA programme in European History and Civilisation, which allows participants spending terms at our three partner universities, Leiden, Paris 1 and Oxford. The deadline is set for June 1st - and we are keen to attract students from all over the world.

Exploring education, research, outreach, and governance. Professor Stolker, who sat on the Europaeum Academic Policy committee, the Council, and Board of Trustees, tries to find the common values, duties and challenges facing law schools around the globe.
