For the fifth year in a row Memory Magazine has compiled a list of the most promising young Dutch lawyers: the Best Young Professionals Law Top 50. Our own Dewi Walian captured a very impressive third place and became the highest scoring woman on the list. We congratulate Dewi on this fantastic achievement!
The Best Young Professionals Law Top 50 list (only available in Dutch) consists of starting Dutch lawyers who have already shown themselves to have everything it takes for a brilliant legal career. As part of the selection procedure, candidates were asked to complete an extensive questionnaire on subjects which included academic performance, career development and legal successes. The best 15 candidates were then interviewed by journalist Arne van der Wal (Follow the Money, Quote 500) who scored them on qualities such as presentation, speaking skills, ambitions and motivation.
