PROLAW crew with boundless knowledge manages to gather professionals from different parts of the globe to discuss about development issues and development goals.

Prior to attending PROLAW program, I worked in my home country for donor funded projects as well as public institutions – secondment to office of the president of Kosovo. PROLAW helped me shape ideas from the international perspective which further led to numerous practices and solutions, and was a unique chance for my academic journey, the most logical extension of what I had learned by far. Upon my graduation I started working for leading consultancy firms advising for rule of law projects supporting the Constitutional Court of Kosovo and education programs which address key development issues such as corruption and transparency. Currently, I serve as Senior Project Manager for an Italian consultancy firm which leads the consortium for the Civil Code project in Kosovo, supporting the Ministry of Justice to strengthen the rule of law and harmonize Kosovo legislation with the European standards in the area of civil law and property rights. Given rule of law is the hot topic of today’s global development, attending PROLAW made the difference. Our classes were designed in a way that enabled us not only  learn from distinguished professors and rule of law practitioners, but also apply the theory of change by questioning approaches, coming up with new practical solutions in these dynamically changing development trends.
