My name is Lotte Lont. Last June I completed my bachelor’s in law at the UvA. I had the luck to see my classmates win all the prices in the ALT last year. This year, with my fellow committee-members, I will organize this year’s edition from within my position as treasurer for JHV Phaedrus. Currently, I’m following the master International and European tax law at the UvA. Next to my master’s I work at one of the big four at the knowledge management.
My name is Veerle Beenkens. After completing my bachelor’s degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics with a focus on law last year, I am currently finishing my second bachelor’s degree in Dutch law at the University of Amsterdam. I learned a lot as a Board Member of PPLE’s study association AIM last, and I cannot wait to apply this knowledge in the organisation of the Amsterdam Law Trials this year. In 2019 I reached the ALT finals as Best Speaker, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Trials myself, so I am excited to be able to provide participants with the same experience and opportunities this year!
My name is Klaudia Klonowska and I study International Technology Law Masters at the Vrije Universiteit van Amsterdam.

During this year’s preparations for the Amsterdam Law Trials I will take care of the student and student coaches registrations.
