Teaching duties

Via the EFS colleagues from the Tax Law department of ESL and the Tax Economics department of ESE organise three post-master programmes every year, namely in the field of direct taxation, indirect taxation and EU Customs Law. Courses are given in the Executive Master Customs and Supply Chain Compliance at RSM and the department is responsible for the ‘legal pillar’ within this programme. In addition, the department joins up with the Commercial Law department to teach the elective ‘Legal aspects of the supply chain’ in the master Supply Chain Management at RSM. From the academic year 2018/2019, the Tax Law department plans to introduce a graduate variant in Indirect Taxes in cooperation with the Tax Economics department of ESE within the accreditations of the current masters in Tax Law and Tax Economics. The new endowed chair will contribute from his/her own subject area to the education programmes from the EFS post-masters, in particular as programme director of thepost-master programme indirect taxes. The chair holder will also contribute to teaching the VAT course in the bachelor Tax Law and the subject Capita VAT in the master Tax Law. Furthermore, the endowed chair will teach in the Tax Economics programmes. Finally, the endowed chair will contribute to courses in the new master variant ‘indirect taxes’. The chair holder will be expected to make an important contribution to the internationalisation of the education programme currently offered in EFS and the regular Master.

Erasmus University Rotterdam

The expertise of Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) is concentrated in the fields of  Business Administration,  Economics, Medicine and Health Sciences, Law, Social Sciences, History, Culture and Communication, and Philosophy. In addition to the initial degree programmes and scientific research, the University offers specific postgraduate study programmes and courses. Erasmus University has around 25,000 students and some 2,700 staff members.



More than 4,000 students attend Erasmus School of Law (ESL), and the School has around 400 employees. ESL provides bachelor’s degree programmes in Law, Tax Law and Criminology, with education focusing on active academic learning. Students can subsequently choose from 15 master’s degree programmes. For students who have greater ambitions, there is also a Master of Laws – Post-master’s Programme (Dutch: mr.drs.): a double degree programme in law and economics. Upon completion of a master’s degree, the Erasmus School of Law (in collaboration with the Erasmus Academy and others) offers several post-graduate tracks.  

The fundamental premise underlying academic research conducted at ESL is that law cannot be considered in splendid isolation or as an end in itself. It is imbedded in an economic and social context that shapes law. At the same time, law itself shapes society and defines economic relationships. In line with this vision, the mission of ESL is to conduct innovative research on the function of law in its economic and social context. ESL research has a strong social and business-driven orientation. ESL is committed to promoting international and interdisciplinary research. More information on the ESL research programmes, can be found at: http://www.esl.eur.nl/research/programmes.
