LEGAL EMPOWERMENT ACADEMY
Updated 41 days ago
Barentszstraat 187, AMSTERDAM, Netherlands
The Legal Empowerment Academy is a social enterprise. It is initiated by Jobien Monster on basis of the premise that the emancipatory potential of global law depends on the reasoning skills that are employed in local legal analysis and decision-making. Her focus is on legal skills and methodology and questions about the distribution of scarce rights. She is about to complete her Phd thesis: "Law and dispute resolution: truning tables in developing legal orders" at Tilburg Law School, The Netherlands. She also works as a freelance lawyer in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in the field of rights protection against the government. Most of her cases in Amsterdam are about the fair distribution of scarce exploitation rights. She co-authored various articles on microjustice and law as a social learning practice.
