Lawyer and case coordinator

"The Basic Law stipulates: All persons shall be equal before the law. No person shall be favoured or disfavoured [...]. - Unfortunately, reality is often different. However, there can be no freedom without equality. Hence, we must support vulnerable groups in our society in achieving equality."

Soraia Da Costa Batista joined the GFF's legal team in 2021 and coordinates proceedings focussing on "Equal Rights and Social Participation".

She studied law in Freiburg im Breisgau and Berlin and worked for many years at the Humboldt Law Clinic Fundamental and Human Rights. Her work there focussed on national and international human rights protection, law enforcement and critical and queer-feminist jurisprudence. She has worked closely with advocacy organisations.

Most recently, she completed her legal clerkship at the Department for Sexualised Violence and LGBTI* Hate Crime of the Berlin Public Prosecutor's Office, at the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights e.V. and at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs in the field of business and human rights as well as at the Federal Constitutional Court.
