The Amsterdam Law and Finance Association (ALFA) is a new study association for students of the Master’s programme in Law and Finance (L&F) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and for other students of the University of Amsterdam who are interested in topics related to Law and Finance. The association is affiliated with the University of Amsterdam.
Our main goals are:
To offer an additional platform where students of the L&F master and other interested students can learn about and discuss topics related to law and finance.
To allow students to get to know the work field and a broad range of law firms, companies and academics.
To advance the social cohesion between members of the association.
Furthermore, A.L.F.A. strives to:
To foster self-organization by the students within the association .
To engage in new partnerships and to maintain existing partnerships with partners from (legal) practice.
To ensure a fruitful cooperation with all parties involved.
To achieve its goals, A.L.F.A. will organize both social and content extra-curricular activities such as guest lectures, workshops, outings and firm visits. Please feel free to send us an email if you are interested in joining the association or if you are interested in a collaboration.
Hello everyone, my name is Zitong Ding. I’m the secretary of the ALFA Board 23-24. My mission is to publicize the ALFA and interact with the student body of the MLF program. On top of that, I wish I could inspire you and more than anything, be inspired by you. Together with other board members, I will strive to make this academic year an unforgettable experience for all of us!
My name is George Karapostolis and my goal as the Chairman of ALFA is to make sure that everyone involved in the Association has the necessary tools to perform and develop themselves. I am focusing on bringing all members together and creating a strong team spirit. Organizing social events, guest lectures and firm visits is ALFA’s main purpose but the most important is giving the LLM Law and Finance’s students a place to express themselves and address potential issues.
