Annual PhD Training Course
On the 7 and 8 June 2018 the Leiden Law School hosted a PhD Training organized by the NNHRR in cooperation with the Leiden University. Twenty PhD researchers attended the course.
Academics from around the Netherlands shared their knowledge and experience with the participants. The issues tackled included the balance between academic sincerity and societal engagement, doctrinal and critical legal research, empirical and interdisciplinary research.
There was also a session on marketing one’s research, which was divided in two parts: conference training and publishing as well as blogging and twitting. In addition to that, there was a practical session on time management, health and potential burn outs, together with balancing teaching obligations with research. Further, the Leiden Law Library offered a practical training on reference managers and human rights databases.
The Junior Members of the NNHRR who participated in this two days course gave a positive feedback with regard to the course.
