Jelena is a Lecturer in European and Comparative Law within the Faculty of Laws, University of Malta. Before joining the University of Malta in 2016 she had read the degrees of Ph.D. at King's College London, LL.M in European and International Law at London Metropolitan University and LL.B at the MESI. Her Ph.D. thesis focused on the EU Member States' compliance with judgments of the CJEU on so-called "Golden Share" cases. Jelena's academic interests lie broadly in the areas of financial law and regulation, EU law, corporate law and the law of the Internal Market, with a particular focus on regulation of cross-border investment. Her research often takes a transnational, European or comparative perspective and applies an interdisciplinary approach to law.
Prior to joining the University, Jelena worked with an environmental NGO as EU Policy Researcher and as an in-house counsel with a Latvian software development company.
