The Antwerp Tax Academy acquired the support of Deloitte to attract two joung talents for the research and education in tax law.
The support of Deloitte Belastingconsulenten primarily concerns the fundamental tax research within the law faculty. With these funds the faculty of law at the University of Antwerp can employ Miss Nathalie Wittock for the next four years as a doctoral researcher, under promotorship of prof. dr. Bruno Peeters. Miss Wittock graduated magna cum laude at the LLM program in tax law at the University of Antwerp. She will combine the Deloitte PhD Grant with her activities as a tax lawyer connected to the Laga law firm.
Furthermore, Deloitte also contributes to the tutoring of students of the successful LLM in tax law, by financing the mandate of a teaching assistent for a period of four years. During the first year, this task will be carried out by Mr. Nicolas Engelmann, who is also a graduate of the LLM program in tax law at the University of Antwerp and is also a tax lawyer connected to the Laga law firm.
Additionnaly, Deloitte has for a certain amount of time already been financing the legal code textbooks for all students of the LLM in tax law. In order for the jurists to be capable of successfully finishing the tax law program, an intensive training in accounting is offered to them. The content thereof is monitored and selected by Deloitte.
With its much appreciated support, Deloitte emphasizes the importance it attaches to a good cooperation with the University of Antwerp.
