During my studies Dutch Law at the University of Tilburg, I was already employed by the Bierens Group as a lawyer. This is how I became familiar with the legal profession and this firm. In 2007, I graduated cum laude with majors in civil law and constitutional and administrative law. As of March 2008, I have been employed here as an attorney at law. In addition, I am a member of the Administrative Law Association (VAR), and I have published two articles in Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Bestuursrecht (Dutch Magazine for Constitutional Law).
