Digi’s looking for a new board 2021-2022!

For the next academic year, Digi Juridica is looking for a new board! Are you currently studying for your master’s degree in Law: Internet, Intellectual Property and ICT or International Technology Law, or will you start studying this in September?

And would you like to learn new skills in addition to your studies, and above all, have a great and fun year with four other board members? Then send your CV and motivation letter to info@digijuridica.nl before 30 April! Don’t forget to mention in which two positions you would be interested and why.

Unfortunately, only Dutch students can currently apply for the positions of president, secretary, treasurer and board member external relations. However, international students can apply for the position we introduced this year: board member international, which will be in charge of creating more involvement of the international students.

The board members explain what their position exactly entails below.

President (Sandra Toethuis)

As the (part time, +/- 4 hours a week) president of the association you are the face of the association and the contact person for students, sponsors and companies that are interested in cooperating with Digi Juridica. For that reason, it is important that you are responsible, organized and enthusiastic about talking to a lot of different people. The tasks of the president are mainly the contact with the (potential) sponsors, leading board meetings and supervise the Career Committee. For me, the most fun part was having the freedom to organize the association however we (the other board members and I) wanted to. You are the one who chooses the direction of the association!

So are you excited to give Digi Juridica a great start after COVID? Do you already have a thousand amazing activities and trips in mind? Then please apply to become the next president of Digi Juridica!

Secretary (Heleen van Gorp)

As secretary, you are mainly involved in the membership administration and you have a lot of direct contact with the members.

Are you sociable, precise and have good language skills? Then apply for the position of secretary!

Treasurer (Rakeem Strijk)

The treasurer is responsible for the financial affairs of Digi Juridica. You will draw up the budget and oversee the financial policy.
