Dear student,

Welcome to the web page of the Utrecht Law Society (JSVU). We are the official general law society of the Utrecht University. Our society has one goal: looking after the interests of the Utrecht law students. We try to reach this goal by offering a great diversity of activities, organized by students, for students.

Our activities can be divided in several categories. First of all the educational services: we offer books for all bachelor and master courses. A couple of weeks before a new course period starts (one semester exists of two periods) you can order you books online in our webshop, with a discount of 15 % on English law books. We will inform you about the ordering period through the international office. Just before the beginning of the period you can pick up your pre-ordered  books in our shop at Domplein 24.

Besides these materials, we also organize symposia, career days, lectures and firm visits. Just keep an eye on the agenda on this page, Facebook or the posters in the university buildings to know what’s going on and which events are in English!

Next to the serious business there is also room for a lot of student parties. Every month we organize a members drink @ Café De Kneus, Nobelstraat 303, and a couple of times a year there will be a big party for all the students. If you are attending Utrecht University during the second semester, you can also join us on our yearly formal near the end of February. Don’t miss it!

International students don’t have to pay a membership fee – you only have to register yourself under ‘My JSVU’. Once you have an account and are logged in, you can order your books with a discount and sign up for activities. We will keep you updated on our activities!

Hope to see you soon!
