What is the research group and what do we do?

We are one of the Centre of Expertise for Global Governance research groups whose role is to conduct research that is relevant for education, society, and the professional practice (see  https://www.thehagueuniversity.com/research/research-groups/details/multilevel-regulation ). Our research investigates law as a driver of a societal change. In our research we want to stay at the forefront of the contemporary changes to the legal professional practice. One example is out of court dispute resolution (i.e. mediation or arbitration) that has been increasingly used in many new fields calling into question the orthodox ways in which law has traditionally been made, practiced, and complied with by citizens. 

We are now looking for a student who would coordinate and add shape to student-led projects.

What projects?

The student-led projects of the research group currently are:

1.     Podcast series https://mlrstudentprojects.squarespace.com/podcast

2.     Blog posts https://mlrstudentprojects.squarespace.com/blog

3.     Internship updates, all included on our beautiful website: https://mlrstudentprojects.squarespace.com/career-opportunities
