TILT Clinics

TILT regularly organizes TILT Clinics. These clinics are a collaboration between TILT and a business. These clinics are usually structured as follows: During one month, 4 students will work on a practical assignment, commissioned by the business. The students will spend one day a week at TILT and one day a week at the premises of the business. This way, students will be supervised and guided both from an academic as well as an in-house legal & business perspective.
