Since 2014, our Brussels TMT team is a proud mentor of KU Leuven’s ICT Law Incubator project. 

Our lawyers guide the university’s law students in advising two start-ups, Nazka Mapps and Sweepatic, on IP, IT, and privacy laws. In the previous collaborations, we mentored the laws students in advising Uxprobe, FEops, Panenco BVBA, and Layered Prints.  

The ICT Law Incubator project in Belgium – as well as the De Clinic programme to which our Amsterdam colleagues contribute – is part of the European Law Incubator project iLinc. This project aims to provide free legal support to start-ups whilst offering postgraduate law students the opportunity to gain practical experience.
