With over 5,000 students and 450 members of staff, Leiden Law School is one of the largest faculties in the Netherlands. Yet, in all its diversity, it is still known for its ability to provide education on a small scale. The Faculty focuses on multi-faceted high-level teaching and research, both nationally and internationally. It does so by working with talented people and stimulating and supporting them in their professional and personal ambitions. The Faculty is housed in the beautifully restored Kamerlingh Onnes Building on the Steenschuur in Leiden. Working for the Leiden Law School means working in an inspiring scientific environment.

The Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society (VVI) is part of the Leiden Law School. The VVI seeks to advance knowledge of the formation and functioning of legal systems in their social contexts, the impact of these systems on society and vice versa, their effectiveness in governance, and their contribution to development.
The Institute adopts a socio-legal and global approach, doing research on law in the books and law in action in Asia (notably Indonesia, China), Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. VVI staff teaches several socio-legal thematic and regional courses for both Dutch and foreign exchange students. In addition, VVI provides PhD supervision, advisory services and training courses to policy makers and practitioners.
The VVI is preparing a unique, one-year, English-taught Master programme that focuses on the social/scientific study of law and society. The development of this meta-legal Master (expected starting date is 1 September 2020) is a response to the growing societal demand for an empirical approach to law. The programme specifically focuses on the interaction between “law in the books” and “law in action”. Due to the increased complexity of the world we are living in, an interdisciplinary perspective is frequently needed to understand and address societal problems. Nowadays, university graduates are expected to approach complex societal issues from different perspectives and to connect these perspectives when trying to resolve them. The L&S Master is unique in its broad geographical scope (Global North and Global South) and its anthropological/-sociological approach which keeps the study of the law in a central position.
