Welcome at the international page of the Juridische Faculteitsvereniging Groningen (JFV) website! The JFV is the study association of the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen. With over 2,500 members the JFV is one of the largest law faculty associations of the Netherlands. The JFV attempts to integrate International and Dutch students through organising activities that can be attended by both international and Dutch law students.

The JFV was founded in 1908. Over the past 109 years the JFV focussed mainly on Dutch law students. Since a few years the University of Groningen welcomes more and more international law students. As the faculty association of law the JFV encourages integration between Dutch and international students by organizing activities throughout the year. For example the PALS Programme!

JFV/Nexus International Excursion

On the 24 April 2018 the International Committee organizes a trip to close by Veenhuizen to visit the National Prison Museum. We will be given an insight into the history of crime and punishment in an interactive way, we will be able to stand in a prison cell during a visit of the old prison and have a bus tour around Veenhuizen to see how it was build. So if you’ve always wanted to experience what it was like to be imprisoned over the centuries and want to see a bit more of the surroundings of Groningen, this is your chance! Come along and join the International Committee on this excursion full of crime and punishment. The excursion is fully free of charge! So sign up quickly to participate because there are only 25 spots
