Sara Etulain is a Law graduate from University of Barcelona and a LL.M European Law candidate in Leiden University.
She is currently working on her thesis, which revolves around EU regulations on parental leave. This follows up her line of academic research on gender equality and women's rights. Next year, she is going to do study in London, in the Centre for Transnational Legal Studies, an educational entity ruled by Georgetown University, on EU company and competition law, and human rights.
She will also go back to Barcelona to train as a lawyer in a well-known Spanish law firm. Sara is willing to help new students coming to study in Leiden.
She encourages prospective students to be enthusiastic about Leiden, since here they will encounter one of the most rewarding academic experiences they will ever have!
