Julie LAUWERS graduated in 2009 as a Master in Law at the Ghent University. During her studies she concentrated on private law (real estate) and public law.

Mid-2009 she started her apprenticeship at dePuydt-vanCauwelaert, the law firm in Brussels that merged with GD&A-advocaten in 2010. In 2012 the Brussels department of GD&A-advocaten went its own way. Julie Lauwers decided to head for a different direction and joined ORYS as a partner.

In the mean time she has acquired expertise in those domains, as well in Flemish legislation as Brussels legislations.
