We are very happy to introduce to you Anne Brekoo, a representative of the PhD cohort of 2023-2024. Here is a couple of words from Anne:
My name is Anne and I am a third-year PhD student in the ‘European Doctorate on Law and Economics’ at Erasmus University Rotterdam. My PhD research focuses on international criminal law, and specifically investigates the consequences of jurisdictional pluralism with respect to criminal behaviour.
As the cohort representative, I will act as the central contact person. So if you have any questions, feel free to reach out. My aim is to organise a range of social and academic events, to really create a sense of community amongst us young legal empiricists at an inter-university level. If anyone would like to help me out with this, please let me know because it would be great to form a small group for the organization of community-building events .
This time, the ELS Academy shines its spotlight on a fresh publication!
“Research Methods for Empirical Legal Studies: An Introduction” authored by Catrien Bijleveld is the feature of the moment.
Jessie Pool has graciously provided her thoughts on the work: “Bijleveld’s new book serves as an essential guide for both novice and experienced empirical legal researchers. It provides a solid introduction for beginners and offers valuable insights for advanced scholars. The book seamlessly combines theory with practical examples, making the complex field of empirical legal studies accessible for a broad audience.”
The book has found its place within the ELS library at Leiden Law School. Interested in obtaining your personal copy? Do so here: https://lnkd.in/es7vQknD
