March 18th, the Urios Career Event!


Sign up for the Urios Career Event: It will take place on March 17th, during our Lustrum week. This event is organized in order to help students create an awareness of the variety of choices within international and European law and to create a more complete picture of their future career prospects. Not only renowned law firms, but also NGO’s, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other international institutions will be present.

Due to our 35th anniversary and the collaboration with Machiko Kanetake, assistant professor Public International Law at Utrecht University, this Career Event will be bigger than ever: Bart Stapert will open this great event and after that there will be 15 different lectures/workshops (see underneath)!

Furthermore, if you are a motivated law student in the final stages of your studies, and your writing and speaking skills of both French and English are of an adequate level, then Brisdet is looking for you! Brisdet will provide an exclusive lunch for 8 students max. During this lunch you can learn more about the internship and career possibilities at an international law firm, and have an informal talk with Ms. Brisdet herself. Please attend the recruitment lunch and sent your motivation and CV to external@urios.org if you are interested.

Check out the committeelocationprogram & events and sign up now at www.careerevent.urios.org!
