Kasper Jansen, Professor of European Liability Law at Erasmus School of Law, has been appointed as editor-in-chief of the Dutch Journal of Civil Law. In the field of civil law, the journal is one of the most prestigious journals in the Netherlands.
Since 2017, Jansen has been an active member of the editorial board of the Dutch Journal of Civil Law. From 1 October 2021, Jansen will succeed Siewert Lindenbergh as editor-in-chief. Lindenbergh, Professor of Private law at Erasmus School of Law, leaves the editorial board for his upcoming appointment as Attorney General at the Supreme Court.
The Dutch Journal of Civil Law is part of the Journal List Erasmus School of Law 2021, a list consisting of the authoritative, international Bar-Ilan Journal Ranking of 185 star (very good) and A (good) journals, supplemented with 68 Dutch and European (very) good journals, matching the disciplines and profile of Erasmus School of Law. The editorial board of the journal consists of leading legal scholars and lawyers in the field of civil law “The editorial meetings are always very lively and interesting. We judge the texts blindly, so we don't know who we are rejecting. All areas of civil law are covered which makes the editorial work very varied and challenging. I am looking forward to being able to lead the further development of this beautiful journal as editor-in-chief,” says Jansen.
