It aims to be an independent and preeminent center of expertise in the fast expanding fields of Dutch contract law, Dutch employment law, Dutch business law and legal proceedings in the Netherlands.
The Dutch Law Institute is publishing an online English guide on Dutch contract law, Dutch employment law, Dutch business law and litigation in the Netherlands. This legal guide is edited by a number of selected experts on Dutch law. With this publication the Institute intends to increase the accessibility of Dutch law.
Apart from these legal services and outreach activities our legal affairs bureau and research institute pursues a number of other activities in order to promote the accessibility of these fields of Dutch law, like providing commentary in (inter)national media, giving policy advice, and organizing lectures, seminars and other events.
