    Former Interns
  • Section: International and European Sports Law


In 2015, I completed the Master degree of Law at the Pan-European University, Bratislava, Slovakia, after having defended my thesis titled 'Dispute settlement in sports law'. During the final year of my Master studies, I interned for the Slovak Football Association, where I was assigned with certain tasks related to the enactment of the new Act on Sport.[1]

From September 2015 to August 2016, I worked for a regional law firm based in Bratislava, Slovakia, where I practised mainly competition law and administrative sanctioning. As of September 2016, I am a full-time LL.M. student in public international law at Leiden Law School. I focus my research on international criminal law, especially on victim-perpetrator dilemma associated with child soldiers. At the same time, I am enrolled in a postgraduate law programme (Juris Doctor upon successful completion) at the Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. My thesis there bears title 'Sports law and economic competition'.

In my leisure time, I enjoy sports, both actively (football, tennis) and passively (a passionate FC Barcelona fan). My other hobbies include travelling, literature and social life.
