Students of the LRM programme come well-prepared to the labour market. In the first year, we offer various workshop aimed at developing transferrable skills like time-management, inter-cultural competences, collaboration competences and self-analysis. In addition, it is possible to participate in workshops on writing application letters and preparing a good curriculum vitae. The activities undertaken by study association Aletheia also help you to prepare for the future. You will engage in one of their committees to help organising lectures, the yearly study trip, the yearly conference or advise the programme leaders on the study programme. The programme of the annual study trip always includes a visit to an international or foreign legal institute, such as the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. In essence, the LRM offers a wide range of activities geared towards labour market exploration and career development.

Together with committees such as the Lecture Committee, the Conference Committee, the Study-Trip Committee and the Advice Committee, the Board of Aletheia is responsible for organising study-related and social activities for all students of the Legal Research Master. Along with this, Aletheia also helps Legal Research Master students with all matters relating to doing research.
