Learning & Development Volunteer

Lavinia works with the Learning & Development team to assist with the Law and Development Training Programme, as well as planning the development of other A4ID events and publications. Lavinia recently graduated from Queen Mary University of London with an LLM in Human Rights Law, after having completed her Master’s in Law at Karl-Franzens University of Graz in Austria.

Lavinia’s research focused mainly on armed conflicts, terrorism, illegal detention and refugee law. She worked previously for a commercial law firm and university in Austria. Lavinia is also part of the Legal Literacy Project Graz, a student association founded to introduce students to legal subjects. As part of the Asylum Team she organised and conducted workshops in schools on Austrian Asylum and Refugee Law, the Austrian Asylum Process and the situation of asylum seekers in Austria.

Lavinia joined the Learning & Development team to help promote and distribute knowledge about the SDGs and to expand her experience in training. Currently, she is also volunteering at the Helen Bamber Foundation, the Peter Tatchell Foundation and is part of the LLM Pro Bono Council at the International Observatory of Human Rights. Attracted by A4ID’s unique approach of bringing lawyers and development organisations across the world together, Lavinia is eager to improve her understanding how the law can facilitate the achievement of sustainable development.
