The PhD Board is the successor of the PhD Discussion Forum. The PhD Board organizes activities for the PhD candidates of the VU Amsterdam Law Faculty. The following persons are currently part of the PhD board: Lisette ten Haaf (Chair/Treasurer), Hjalmar Duin (Secretary), Tamara Last (Public Relations) and Hein Scholtens (Representative to the Research Board). The PhD board organizes a lunch meeting every month at which one of our PhD candidates presents on his or her research, and the PhD Board shares news from the Faculty Research Board, ProVU (the organization that represents the interests of young researchers at the University on the Employees Council, see www.provu.nl) and any other business. The PhD board also organizes social drinks every few months and a PhD dinner once a year.
