About us Faculty of Law Organization Board and committees

Programme Committees

Programme Committees play an important role with regard to quality assurance within the Faculty. They are close to the education offered and have an advising role at programme level towards the Faculty Council, the Faculty Board and the Director of Education. The Programme Committee and her tasks are arranged for in article 9.18 of the Higher Education Act (‘ Wet op het hoger onderwijs en wetenschappelijk onderzoek’ (WHW) ). This article shows three main tasks for the Programme Committee:

  1. Give advice with regard to the Teaching and Examination Regulations (TER);
  2. The annual assessment of the way the TER is/was executed;
  3. Give advice, both consulted and unsolicited, on all issues regarding education within the programme (education execution, planning of education, study advising, course evaluations, etc.).

The Faculty of Law has ten Programme Committees. Each Programme Committee is composed of students and academic staff (equally divided). Next to the tasks mentioned above, the Programme Committee is also the place for students to report matters to. Students can send complaints, suggestions and problems about courses, examinations and/or staff members to the student members of the Programme Committee. The table below shows the email address available for each Programme Committee.

Are you interested in joining a Programme Committee? Student members are selected yearly based on an application procedure which is taken care of by the study association which is linked to the respective programme.
