My Last Week in Law School & Future Plans

My Last Week in Law School & Future Plans

Dear Diary... This was the last day of my old life. A life as an ambitious law student in Washington DC at the George Washington University Law School.

It's time to say goodbye. This is my last day of law school; and the first day of my new life. Today, is the first day of a new beginning.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider A Double Degree

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider A Double Degree

This academic year was my first year as a double degree student. After finishing my Bachelor in Laws (LL.B. in Dutch Law), I decided that studying only law was not going to make me happy. I rediscovered my love for philosophy due to a course of Philosophy of Law that I took previous year, and from that moment I knew I was hooked. So this year, I started with the Bachelor Philosophy Of A Specific Scientific Field (B.A.), and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Why?
