Francisco de Icaza ha escrito que 'no hay en la vida nada como la pena de ser ciego en Granada', y tenía razón. Es obvio que la ciudad es una maravillosa, pero, para mí, lo que más brillaba era la gente que conocí aquí. Nunca he visto almas tan puras con corazones de oro. Cuando la veo sonreír, soy el hombre más feliz.
#HumansOfTheKOG "Hi, I'm Marloes and a second year International Business Law student! But I'm also a very passionate musician! I play the bugle, it's a brass instrument that looks a little bit like a trumpet. I play in the National Youth Fanfare Orchestra, also known as the NJFO. The NJFO is made up of conservatory students aged 15 to 27. We give six nationals concerts every year and make an international tour every two years. Music is a great addition to my law studies because it helps with my concentration skills and analytical skills. Studying law and playing music is the best combination I could dream of!" 👩🏻💼🎼 #leidenlaw#leidenlawschool#law#leidenuniversity#universiteitleiden#universitylife#music
#HumansOfTheKOG : "Hi, I'm Jennifer Breet, and a master student of criminal law. Next year I'll also be focusing more on cyber law. That's because I really want to be a Public Prosecutor OvJ in the future, hopefully one that specializes in 'cyber criminality'! I think there will be a lot of development in this area of justice. Next to my study I row competitively at the Royal Student Rowing Club KSRV "Njord" in Leiden. I pretty much row all the time and I am hoping, that one day, this hard work will earn my crew medals at a major international rowing regatta like the Head of the Charles in Boston!" ⚖️🚣🏼♀️ #leidenlaw#leidenlawschool#law#cyberlaw#students#leidenuniversity#rowing
#HumansOfTheKOG : "Hello, I'm Diederick! A third year law bachelor student and 23 years old. Since I was young I knew I wanted to study law, because it's one of the fundamental pillars of modern society. I'm currently writing my thesis on crown witnesses, and the Italian pentito system where former mafia members helped investigations after they'd been arrested. Law, however, is not my only passion. I'm also a passionate fan of Bossa Nova. Not many people know this genre of music but it's a type of jazz influenced heavily by Brazilian samba. A perfect combination to wake up to in the morning or listen to whilst studying! 👨🏼🎓🎶 #leidenlaw#leidenlawschool#leidenuniversity#universiteitleiden#universitylife#students
#HumansOfTheKOG : "Hi, I am Annemieke, a third-year Law and Business (Recht en Bedrijfswetenschappen) student. I would like to do the Master European Law. I am interested in the development of various legal systems in Europe and the cooperation between all these cultures. At the moment I am following an extra course: Europe in practice (Europa in de praktijk). Next year I am going to study in Prague for four months with an emphasis on this field. The semester abroad is a good preparation for the master and a great experience!
My favorite spot at the KOG is the balcony because of the sun and the beautiful view!" 👩🏼⚖️🌞 #leidenlaw#leidenlawschool#universiteitleiden#leidenuniversity#studentlife#universitylife#lawstudent
#HumansOfTheKOG : "Hey, my name is Esther and I am a second year law student. Next to my study I volunteer at the Kinder- en Jongerenrechtswinkel. Translation: Child and Youth Legal Aid Bureau. We help kids under 21 with their legal questions. It's mostly about family and domestic related issues, but we also help delinquents in a juvenile detention center. It really satisfies me to see that we can create results and help these kids. And sometimes we can't help, but then these children still need a listening ear. Through this work experience, I've really become interested in juvenile justice and may want to specialise in this master!" 👩🏼⚖️#leidenlaw#universiteitleiden#leiden#lawschool#lawstudent#leidenlawschool#leidenuniversity#universitylife#studentlife
