I studied law at the University of Mainz/Germany from 1994 and passed the 1st State Exam in the Federal State of Rhineland-Palatinate in 2000. Between 1997 and 1998, I studied at the University of Glasgow as part of the additional degree of Magister iuris of German and Foreign Law, which I was awarded in 2003 by the University of Mainz. After two years internship at the Ministry of Justice of the Federal State of Hessen, I also passed the 2nd State Exam in 2003. From 2004 onwards I studied at the University of Auckland/New Zealand for my LLM with specialisation in (International) Public Law. In 2006, I started working as Teaching Assistant at the School of Law of the University of Dundee and in September 2007 began work as Tutor in Law here in Aberystwyth.
