The Law & Economics Society (hereafter: LES) is established in March 2018. Objective of the LES is to facilitate external activities related to the joint Master Law and Economics at Utrecht University and support internal cohesion between the students, as well as to provide a platform for international (law) students at the JSVU. The LES aims to organise activities in close relationship to the University, particularly towards the LLM and MSc Law & Economics. Building a network of students in relation to potential job opportunities will be an auxiliary goal of the LES. The activities of the LES will take place at Master’s level and will take account of the curriculum of the Master programme Law and Economics. In addition to this bachelor students with specific interest in the Master Law and Economics can participate in the events the LES organises. The activities will focus on a broader content of the Master’s program.
