Dear Graduate of Erasmus School of Law and member of the class of 2013,

On behalf of the members of the Department of Public International and the Department of European Law I would like to address a few words to you on this very happy occasion.

Please allow us to congratulate you on your graduation in the Master in International and European Public Law. You have attained a remarkable milestone in your life and have spent this last year working very hard to get there. Besides congratulating you, we also let you know that we are honored that you have allowed us to guide you in this processes. Not only have we enjoyed the process, we have also learned during the processes, and we thank you for that opportunity.

Take a minute to think through who you are and who you where at this stage last year. What has changed? I suggest a lot. I also suggest that you have probably grown as a person and as a lawyer.

As to the future, we trust that you will continue to benefit from your education at Erasmus School of Law.  We wish you all the very best in the personal and working aspects of your life. We also hope that you will keep in touch through the department’s website.

I wish to add a short more personal note to this congratulatory message.

I very much regret not being present at your graduation. This feeling concerns all of you but even more in particular those of you whose master theses I supervised.

From Sydney, Australia, where I am on sabbatical, I congratulate all of you with your Master Degree in International and European Public Law and wish you all the very best!

For Dilyana, Sarah and Sophia I add, it was a great pleasure to supervise your master theses and thank you for allowing me to learn about the topics you engaged with.

Kind wishes to all of you

 

Prof Dr. Ellen Hey

Professor of public international law and coordinator of the Master IEPL

Erasmus School of Law

In een werkstad als Rotterdam is arbeidsrecht elke dag onderwerp van discussie. Een in arbeidsrechtelijke vraagstukken gespecialiseerde sectie kan dan ook niet ontbreken binnen Erasmus School of Law te Rotterdam. De sectie Arbeidsrecht is een jong en dynamisch team van arbeidsrechtspecialisten. Blijf op de hoogte van de wervelende dynamiek binnen dit wetenschappelijke vakgebied en het praktische werkveld: het arbeidsrecht volgens de Rotterdamse school!
