In 2017 I started with the bachelor degree Global Law at the University of Tilburg. This master degree focuses on more than one legal system. Moreover, during this bachelor, you look to legal questions from a global perspective. I will finish my bachelor degree in 2021. During my bachelor I discovered my passion for the Dutch law, more particular the criminal law and the family law. That is why I do a minor Dutch law right now. In September 2021 I will start with the master degree Dutch law at the University of Tilburg.
During the last few years I tried to broaden my knowledge. I was a board member at my student association. At the moment I am a member of the Commissie van Beroep. Moreover, I lived for a half year abroad and was a student of the Reykjavik University at that time. During this exchange period I participated in the EEA Law Moot Court, a international moot court competition. And I am proud to say that I was one of the finalists. Furthermore, I used to be a legal assistant by Vluchtelingenwerk. I helped asylum seekers during their asylum procedure and made sure the maintained in contact with their attorneys. Moreover I assisted during the open consultation hour.
I lacked experience in the field of criminal law and family law. That is why I applied at Berte Advocaten. As a secretary over here I assist the attorneys by doing for example case law research. I noticed from the first instance that the team at Berte Advocaten is professional but that they are also a solid team. At Berte Advocaten everybody gets their chance to develop themselves.
