Mr. Steven Menten (1976, Hasselt) graduated as a Bachelor of Law at the Ghent University. In his final year, he resided and studied at the University of Valencia (Spain) in the context of the Erasmus exchange programme.
The international nature of this type of exchange led him to complete specialist training in International and European Law at the Vrije Universiteit in Brussels; he completed this course with honours in 2001.
In 2001, he began his internship at the bar.
Given his interest in commercial law in general, in 2004 he decided to specialise in this area and graduated as a Master of Business Law at the University of Antwerp.
