European Law Master's Ambassadors
Do you have a question about the Europan Law LLM programme? Or would you like to know what it's like to study in Leiden as an international student? Our master's ambassadors are more than happy to answer all your questions. Feel free to send them an email!
My name is Dana. I am 22 years old, and I recently graduated from a bachelor in French private/public Law at the University Sorbonne Paris Nord. I am both French and Syrian. Having two different cultures, I have always known that I would later work on an international level. In order to widen my horizons, I decided to specialize in international and/or European Law through a master’s degree. I figured it would be a great opportunity to apply at Leiden University, which is in this field within the top 10 of the best universities in Europe and in the top 25 in the World. My ambitions are to work for a private or public international organization or a European institution. In Leiden, we are at the heart of Europe. As we are close to the Hague, Strasbourg and Luxembourg, we are very strategically located.
I speak four languages: I am native in French and Arabic, and I have learned Spanish throughout my life. I have had two internships in law firms, one of which was in an international corporate law firm focused on Africa. Furthermore, I have volunteered for a French association helping refugees to integrate in a profession. Finally, I have taken part in a Model UN in Lyon, during which I represented the interests of a Member State to the High Commissioner for Refugees.
While I am in Leiden, I intend to make the most of my LL.M. and to learn as much as I can. I would like to join the Leiden Debating Union, take theatre classes, and explore my extracurricular passions at the University Sports Centre. I'm happy to be a student ambassador and would love to help prospective students who have questions about the LL.M. or about Leiden's Univeristy in general.
If you’d like to know more, don’t hesitate to contact Dana via email.
Since he moved to the Netherlands, classes have been online due to the COVID-19 restrictions and contact with fellow students has not been possible. While waiting with hope for the health situation to improve in the near future, Martí is willing to help and give advice to new students coming to study in Leiden.
