European Law Master's Ambassadors

Do you have a question about the Europan Law LLM programme? Or would you like to know what it's like to study in Leiden as an international student? Our master's ambassadors are more than happy to answer all your questions. Feel free to send them an email!

Dana Lababidi

My name is Dana. I am 22 years old, and I recently graduated from a bachelor in French private/public Law at the University Sorbonne Paris Nord. I am both French and Syrian. Having two different cultures, I have always known that I would later work on an international level. In order to widen my horizons, I decided to specialize in international and/or European Law through a master’s degree. I figured it would be a great opportunity to apply at Leiden University, which is in this field within the top 10 of the best universities in Europe and in the top 25 in the World. My ambitions are to work for a private or public international organization or a European institution. In Leiden, we are at the heart of Europe. As we are close to the Hague, Strasbourg and Luxembourg, we are very strategically located.

I speak four languages: I am native in French and Arabic, and I have learned Spanish throughout my life. I have had two internships in law firms, one of which was in an international corporate law firm focused on Africa. Furthermore, I have volunteered for a French association helping refugees to integrate in a profession. Finally, I have taken part in a Model UN in Lyon, during which I represented the interests of a Member State to the High Commissioner for Refugees.

While I am in Leiden, I intend to make the most of my LL.M. and to learn as much as I can. I would like to join the Leiden Debating Union, take theatre classes, and explore my extracurricular passions at the University Sports Centre. I'm happy to be a student ambassador and would love to help prospective students who have questions about the LL.M. or about Leiden's Univeristy in general.

Francesco Felici

Francesco graduated with a BA in International Affairs and Legal Studies from John Cabot University and is now a student of the European Law LLM at Leiden University. After having studied in both Italy and the United States, Francesco is now bringing to the Netherlands a dynamic and intersectional profile which matches the spirit of progress of Leiden University. 

Francesco is working as a political analyst and rubric coordinator for an international think tank, where he is now helping to coordinate the European Affairs department. He has also worked as a research assistant, thus combining his interest with scholarly rigor. In the future, he intends to continue his work in the European institutions to bring about a new and holistic perspective to the EU.

At Leiden, Francesco is determined to create a sense of community for students and professors alike, to create an environment where all can work together effectively. The study of European law teaches us that together we are greater than the sum of our parts, and it is through collaboration and solidarity we can achieve great things.
