The new Boas Scholars introduce themselves! – Bram Devolder

Bram Devolder

After obtaining my law degree at Ghent University in 2015, I became a teaching assistant at KU Leuven (Centre for Methodology of Law) and started my doctoral research on regulatory disruption by the sharing economy under the supervision of Dean Bernard Tilleman. The focal point of my research is situated on the interface between contract law, economic regulation, law and technology, and law and economics. By pursuing an LL.M. degree at Harvard Law School, I aim to take my research to a higher level through increased knowledge of the U.S. legal system and improved skills in legal methodology. Being submerged in the profound interdisciplinarity of scholarship at Harvard will help me to become a more mature legal scholar.
Having read the testimonials of past BOAS scholars, I am convinced that spending an academic year in Cambridge is about much more than taking courses in my area of interest. Harvard is well-renowned for its social events, such as daily lunch seminars where influential scholars from around the world discuss their latest research results. I look forward to discussing preliminary ideas with renowned experts and meeting international students and scholars with similar interests in the implications of technology for law and society. It would be an honor if I could make a humble contribution to the intellectual and social life at Harvard Law School.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to pursue graduate studies at Harvard with the support of the Boas program. It is both an enormous privilege and an astounding responsibility to join the impressive family of Boas scholars. I have the ambition to make a difference in the world by giving back to society, and hope to live up to the examples set by past Boas scholars.
