Leiden Law Students visit Europol
On Thursday 7 March, a group of around 40 Leiden Law students visited the EU’s Agency for the coordination of cooperation between law enforcement authorities, the former European Police Office (Europol) in the world’s legal capital: The Hague.
The visit took place in the framework of the Jean Monnet Chair on Mobility and Security and followed on a prior visit to the Agency’s judicial counterpart, Eurojust, earlier this year. Exchange students following the LLC Course on “A Europe that Serves and Protects”, as well as students from the European law master and the master in Criminal Justice joined the trip.
Students were given a presentation on the way in which Europol operates, as a coordinating body and information hub assisting in the fight against cross-border organised crime and terrorism.
