Education and Training
Over 30 years lecturing experience both at universities and in law practices. Recurring topics have been specific themes relating to insolvency law and contract law.
I have provided numerous post-academic education training courses in the Netherlands in various universities and for the Grotius Academy. I have also provided training through commercial course providers and in-house courses at law firms. Frequently such courses are of between 2 and 4 hours duration. Such courses qualify for 'educational points' in conformity with the requirements of the Dutch Law Association or the Royal Notarial Association (as arranged by Law@Work).
Topical legal matters
I hold lectures on topical legal matters concerning commercial law, property law and insolvency law for lawyers in commercial legal practice. Topical legal matters may comprise recent case law from the last 9 - 12 months and short reviews of salient literature (such as recent doctoral theses). Most of the time these lectures are of 1 to 2 hours duration and can be provided during a lunch or at the end of a business day.
For lawyers of few years' experience I provide lectures on the following topics:
Furthermore I hold lectures on insolvency law topics, such as:
At the University of Leiden I am responsible for a 3 ECTS programme 'International Insolvency Law' during the masterprogramme Company Law and a 'Privatissimum' in which students write 6 papers.
Since 2000/2001 I have been responsible for an English 'International Insolvency Law' programme specifically designed for non-Dutch LL.M students, as a part of a one-year course entitled LL.M 'International Business Law', also at the VU Amsterdam (the course involves seven lectures of two hours, a case study, written papers and a written exam). I also lectured at Law Schools in New York, Frankfurt, Pretoria and Riga.
