Ivanna-Mariia Melnyk



Ivanna was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. In 2009, Ivanna joined the Institute of International Relations of Taras Shevchenko National University and therefore decided to move to Kyiv.  

During the summer of 2013 she had a great opportunity to put the acquired knowledge into practice during an internship in a law firm specializing in international trade law, which was a good chance to work with real clients and WTO law issues. Therefore, after this internship she decided to apply to the International trade regulation Master’s Program in Kyiv, which was fully taught in English. 

During her Master’s Program Ivanna was an active student always engaging in extracurricular university activities and showing high academic performance. Other interesting experiences Ivanna had were: the ELSA WTO moot court competition (Prague), the Workshop WTO Model (Kyiv) and the INADR Dispute Settlement Competition (Chicago). These experiences helped her deepening in the essence of WTO law, dispute settlement and international trade policy.  Such experiences pointed a direction to the IELPO Master program.

For Ivanna the IELPO LL.M. program is a great opportunity to study subjects she is interested in at the highest level. IELPO is a chance to get useful experience and better knowledge in trade law, international economic law and opens a door in her future as trade law professional.
