Picnic with ASA- June 17th, 5PM
To celebrate the coming of the summer and the end of our academic year we decided to host a little something. And what better than a sunny and fresh picnic at Vondelpark?
Join us on June 17th at 5PM to enjoy an afternoon full of fun! Make sure to bring your favourite drinks and snacks and to be ready to soak into the last rays of sun! We promise to make the afternoon exciting by preparing some games we all can play!
See you under the sun!
p.s. it is important that you bring your own beverages/food, as ASA cannot cater for everyone’s dietary requirements.
The Hague Day Trip
Every year, ASA organizes a day trip to the Hague to discover its international institutions and this year is no exception. So mark your calendars as our 2022 yearly day trip to the Hague is taking place Monday 2nd of March. Here is the planning for the day: leaving around 8 AM at Amsterdam Centraal. We will first be visiting Eurojust, the European Union Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation, at 10 AM. Then, we will walk to see the ICTY, the OPCW, and the Mandela Freedom Monument. An optional lunch at a nearby cafe will follow. Trip back to Amsterdam around 1 PM, depending on the time spent on location. Another institution might be added to our program, in which case we will of course keep you informed!

Panel discussion in collaboration with SIB- The Status of the AU and the EU relations
Ahead of the European Union and African Union Summit, CIA-SIB and ASA International Law joined forces to organise a panel discussion that will reflect on the summit’s aims on January 17th.
What are the union’s relationship dynamics of sustainable growth, peace, and governance? How can migration, green transition, and digital transformation be tackled in partnership? These questions will feed into the 6th EU-AU summit in February of 2022 and serve as a framework for our panellists one month before.

Internships & Jobs Seminar with Ellen Huang
ASA International Law is thrilled to host Ellen Huang and her seminar on internships and jobs here at UvA. Ellen is a Canadian lawyer who has obtained her Juris Doctorate and LL.L, and specialises in international and common law. In addition to studying in Canada, she also spent some time at UvA participating in the United Nations International Student Conference in the PPLE College, focusing on the ICJ moot competition.
She has interned for law firms in Paris and Canada, worked as a research assistant in the Supreme Court of Canada, and has spent a year coaching students on job applications and cover letters. She is currently working for the Canadian Red Cross, where she started as a legal intern and is now an articling student. Having navigated the internship and job finding process herself, she is now keen to "give back" and guide current law students on the process.
So many of you have been asking about how you can get to know us and our association better, and now you have an answer! Whether you’re already a member or still considering if you want to become one, this borrel is for you. Join us at Cafe Sarphaat on Wednesday the 22nd of September and get to know ASA and the other members!
