Say legal academy

Sharing knowledge

Say legal likes to share knowledge. During one-on-one sessions, a postgraduate course or as a speaker or chairperson at events with 300+ participants. The number of participants is not relevant, what counts is the energy in the room.

Sarah has extensive experience in speaking in various settings. She is a frequent speaker at annual food events organised by European Food & Feed Law Review (EFFL), VMT (Food Future Event, Food Law Event), VoedingNu and Die Akademie Fresenius. She also teaches at the Professional Education for Trademark and Design Attorneys (BBMM), Rutgers University New Jersey in the United States and she teaches a recurring course in food law at LegalPlanet. Sarah furthermore teaches food law and advertising law in smaller groups: for example through master classes, courses for lawyers or in-house workshops.

Sarah also contributes to (legal) development and ‘knowledge transfer’ by writing articles and annotations (comments) under judgements of the European Court of Justice, judgements of Netherlands courts or decisions of the Advertising Code Committee or the Board of Appeal. See below some of these articles and annotations.

Say legal places these activities under a separate flag: Say legal academy.
