Visit the renewed Leiden Law Blog

The Leiden Law Blog has been completely renewed. It is now more interactive and blogs can be more easily shared.

The design of the blog has also changed. It now corresponds better with Leiden University house style and displays better on mobile devices.

About the Leiden Law Blog

In the blog, Leiden Law School employees, students and guests share their expertise. They write about research, react to current events and take part in scientific debate.

Last year, 65 percent of the visitors found the blog via a Google search. The remaining visitors used a direct link, for example in a newsletter or on the university website, or found the blog via social media.

Much more than in the first years of the Leiden Law Blog, people nowadays visit the site from their smartphone. This number is still increasing.
