The Amsterdam Law School is housed in the Oudemanhuispoort, a historic building dating from 1602 situated in the historical center of Amsterdam. With 4000 students and 350 staff members, the Faculty is one of the largest faculties in the Netherlands. The Faculty offers students a wide variety of courses and has a strong international orientation, with both a global and a European focus. The Faculty favours an interdisciplinary approach, collaborating with other law schools in the Netherlands and incorporating such fields as economics, psychology, sociology and even health care with the study of law. The Faculty also maintains strong ties with the corporate world and many staff members are also legal practitioners. Social engagement is another characteristic of both staff and students, who frequently offer their services to various law clinics.
