Students of the Master European Law visit Europol
On Wednesday 27 February, a group of around 30 Leiden Law students visited the EU’s Agency for the coordination of cooperation between police authorities, the 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 academic year. Exchange students following the LLC Course on “A Europe that Serves and Protects” and students from the European law master joined the trip. Earlier, Executive Director of Europol, Catherine De Bolle, had opened the Master year and had invited students to pay a visit to the Agency’s headquarters.
Students were given a presentation on the work of Europol, as a coordinating body and information hub, assisting in the fight against cross-border organised crime and terrorism.
