Who We Are
Say hello to this year’s board! We are more than excited to welcome you to a new academic year full of new discoveries and adventures. The board is here to make sure that the study association is operating perfectly, while offering students the best experience in their LLM here at UvA.
We are responsible for coordinating the activities for students which are both for learning, as well as communicating and having fun. The board is closely connected to the committees which make sure to organise different events for our fellow students.
We are happy and enthusiastic to see where this year will take us, but we are ready to be taking this role together.
