Amsterdam Law School
The University of Amsterdam is the largest university in the Netherlands, with the broadest spectrum of degree programmes. It is an intellectual hub with 39,000 students, 6,000 employees and 3,000 doctoral students who are all committed to a culture of inquiring minds.
As a doctoral researcher, you will join the Amsterdam Centre for Transformative Private Law (ACT) at the Private law department. ACT is a leading international research centre on private law, offering high-quality contributions to research and education on the role of private law in constituting and changing societies. We understand private law in a broad sense, encompassing both traditional areas (including contract, tort, property, family, and company law) and relative newcomers in the field (such as consumer law, labour law, insolvency law and financial law). In our research and teaching we make use of a variety of methods in order to understand the various dimensions of private law.
Not only do members of ACT have diverse and dynamic interests, but ACT has a close working relationship with other research centres at the UvA: Amsterdam Center for Law and Economics, Amsterdam Centre for International Law, Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance, and Sustainably Global Economic Law.
