In 2014/2015, she taught basic and human rights to prospective police officers at the Berlin School of Economics and Law. She completed her law studies in Münster and Ferrara/Italy - with a focus on fundamental rights and international law. This was followed by an LLM in European law at the College of Europe in Bruges/Belgium and her legal clerkship in Berlin.
