Prof. Vanessa Mak is Director and research leader of the Tilburg Institute of Private Law (TIP). All executive matters relating to research and teaching are otherwise dealt with by the core chair holders in the private law department at Tilburg University, currently under the departmental leadership of mr. dr. Stéphanie van Gulijk.

TIP brings together researchers at all career levels. Many maintain strong ties with either legal practice, courts, or international research networks. PhD researchers in most cases have the opportunity to spend some time abroad, for example at the European University Institute (EUI), the University of Oxford or the Max Planck Institute in Hamburg, and a number of our researchers are affiliated with the Ius Commune Research School.
