Past Activities

Established in 2006, the Bynkershoek Institute first had a liaison with The Hague University of Applied Sciences, for which it developed a four-year curriculum and learning material. In 2014 the rights to that learning material were transferred to that institution of higher learning.

Parallel to that focus on legal education, the Bynkershoek Institute was instrumental in organizing and facilitating conferences during which legal scholars, legal practitioners, and activists from the field, discussed topics as regulatory science and human rights in childbirth. The respective fields were internally organized in research centers. This learning material and the papers of the conferences were published and produced by Bynkershoek Publishing. This unit of the institute cooperated with various stakeholders. For the Dutch law programs, an imprint was chosen with the name “Uitgeverij Joannes van der Linden” (Joannes Publishing).

The Bynkershoek Law Review is another activity of the institute. This non-peer-reviewed journal publishes the interim results of the researchers connected to the Bynkershoek Institute. In 2014 an editorial board consisting of talented students published a special peer-reviewed edition, containing material made by students of the International Bachelor of Law Program of The Hague University of Applied Sciences.

As of 2007 the Bynkershoek Research Center on Legal Education mapped out an agenda for further development of modern legal education. As of 2016 it sponsors a research project of Ernst van Bemmelen van Gent, aimed at the completion of a dissertation in or around 2020. The working title of that research is “What is a good jurist in 2030”.
