Evangelia Anevlavi comes from Athens, Greece. From the beginning of her studies at the Law School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens she was really interested in International Law, which led her to become an active member of ELSA Athens. She later became Vice President for Seminars and Conferences for the 2015/2016 board. She was responsible for organizing a number of events and helping students in Greece benefit from the wide range of academic opportunities ELSA offers.
Evangelia was in charge of the event for the celebration of the ELSA Day with the topic “Gender Equality in Educational Services under the GATS/WTO”, which was awarded by ELSA International as one of the best 25 topics. Furthermore, she was the head of the OC of ELSA Athens' Summer School on “International Investment Law” (20-27 August 2016, Athens), which was held in cooperation with the Athens Center on Public International Law (Athens PIL).
Evangelia was selected to be member of the ELSA Moot Court Competition on WTO Law (EMC2) team and was appointed “Team Captain”. The team managed to capture all the awards of the Regional Round in Passau, Germany (Winning Team Award, Best Complainant Written Submission Award, Best Respondent Written Submission Award, Best Overall Written Submissions Award), while it also managed to win the Best Overall Written Submissions Award in the World Final in Geneva.
To Evangelia, the international trade regime disciplines the commercial interaction between States worldwide. It preserves the equilibrium between sovereign rights of each State, being powerful or not, and their obligations towards the international community.
In the following year she will be a research fellow of the Hellenic Bank Association with respect to the subject “Financial Services and the prudential carve-out under the GATS”.
Evangelia has been awarded the IELPO-ELSA scholarship in order to attend the LL.M. this year. Part of the remaining tuition fees is covered by the Law firm Potamitis-Vekris.
Her mother language is Greek and she also speaks fluently English and German.
As she aspires to become an international trade lawyer and researcher, she believes that the IELPO LL.M. will provide her with all the necessary tools to expand her knowledge and understanding on international economic law and economics.
