Professors are the face of the faculty. Not only because of their scientific research and valorisation, but also because of their recognisability with our current students in the classroom.
The former Deans of Erasmus School of Law made the faculty what it is today. Their vision and decisions made it possible for us to educate a large number of student to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Erasmus School of Law appreciates all the work our emeriti have done for us in the past. With their classes, research projects and expertise they indelible impacted the faculty. Because of the knowledge and efforts of our emeriti, the faculty can proudly live up to its motto: ‘Where Law meets Business’.
