The Ethics and Data Committee of Leiden Law School is responsible for reviewing research proposals from an ethical perspective and reviewing data management plans including GDPR aspects. In general, this concerns research that makes use of new data.
Data management refers to creating, saving, updating, making available, archiving and long-term storage of research data. The final goal of this process is often defined in terms of the FAIR principles: 'Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable'.
Acquiring external funding for research is becoming increasingly important. Proper support for applying for research grants is essential in this process.
The faculty funding advisor, Martine van Trigt, is the first point of contact for researchers. She can advise and support researchers with grant applications. She works together with the Grant Development Team of Leiden University. If needed, she refers researchers to other support and expertise within and outside the faculty.

The focus area Interaction between legal systems is the most important at our Faculty. Interaction between Legal Systems is a research area that is multi-disciplinary and promotes innovative research focussing in content on the interaction between legal systems.
