J.M.J. van Rijn van Alkemade, LLM
Jaap van Rijn van Alkemade (The Hague, 1984) is a PhD-student in the field of Administrative Procedural Law. He studied Law at Leiden University and obtained a masters degree with a specialization in Constitutional and Administrative Law and in Jurisprudence. As a master student he participated in the Talent Programme of the E.M. Meijers Institute of Legal Studies. The Talent Programme (41 Ects) comprises extra-curricular research and teaching activities which are followed in addition to and during one of the master’s programmes of Leiden Law School. During his studies Jaap was also an editor of Ars Aequi, a general law review run by an editorial board consisting exclusively of (PhD-)students. His PhD-research centers on Legal Protection with regard to the allocation of Limited Public Law Rights. Limited Public Law Rights are rights based in public law that are available on a limited basis and for which demand exceeds supply. Examples are permits for the use of radiofrequencies, public transport concessions and grants for expressions of culture and art. When Limited Public Law Rights are distributed there are often big financial interests at stake. Disputes arise easily. With regard to these disputes Jaap tries to answer one main question: does Dutch Administrative Procedural Law create a suitable framework for the settling of these disputes in a manner that secures the effective legal protection of the litigants? In conducting his research, Jaap is supervised by prof. dr. W. den Ouden and prof. dr. J.E.M. Polak. His daily supervisor is dr. Y.E. Schuurmans.
