The new Boas Scholars introduce themselves! – Tom Vos

Tom vos

I am currently a PhD Candidate at the KU Leuven (Belgium). I also did the research master in law at the KU Leuven, where I specialized in business law and tax law. Currently, my research is in the field of corporate law, and more specifically about the protection of shareholder against dilution when corporations issue shares to investors. In my research, I compare the law in Belgium, the United Kingdom and the United States. This was also one of the main reason for enrolling in the LL.M. program at Harvard Law School, to learn more about corporate law in the United States.
Since my studies, I have also been interested in negotiation and I founded a student association about negotiation. Nowadays, I regularly teach students about negotiation and mediation. As Harvard has been described as the “birthplace of negotiation theory”, I am very enthusiastic about learning more about negotiation during my time at Harvard.
In my spare time, I like reading, traveling and playing guitar. I have always been fascinated by American music and literature, and I am very excited about discovering more about the United States during my LL.M next academic year and during my travels in this period.
