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!
Sharon Herbert is a European Law LLM student at Leiden University. She graduated with a Bachelors of Law from the University of Bristol, UK, with a UK and European Union Law background. Currently she is working on her thesis which discusses the extraterritorial application of the European Convention on Human Rights in the context of armed drone conflict. In light of COVID-19, Leiden University facilitated ways for students to continue their studies and participate in various external activities. For example, Sharon participated in conferences organised by the European Law Students’ Association (ELSA) managed by other regional ELSA associations, including ELSA Brussels. She also studied French at Leiden University’s Academic Language Centre. Her main interest is in human rights and European external affairs. She is now setting the foundation for a career specialising in European Union Law and a job in Brussels.
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.
