As of 1 January 2022, Maarten Kroeze is appointed as vice president of the Dutch Supreme Court. In 2016, Kroeze joined the Civil Law Chambre of the Supreme Court as a counsellor. In addition to his appointment at the Supreme Court, Kroeze will remain active as a Professor of Corporate Law at Erasmus School of Law, the School he has been a part of for over seventeen years.

Kroeze is looking forward to his new role at the Supreme Court: “The Dutch Supreme Court fulfils an important task in our constitutional state. It is an honour and pleasure to be able to contribute to this.”
Dean of Erasmus School of Law, Harriët Schelhaas, reacts to the appointment of Kroeze: “The board of Erasmus School of Law is extremely proud of this exceptional and honourable appointment of its former dean. Erasmus School of Law is strongly represented in the Dutch Supreme Court and therefore has a strong societal impact. The appointment of Maarten as vice president emphasizes his exceptional factual qualities and leadership. We wish Maarten good luck and a great time in his new position.”
