More about Veronika

I am currently pursuing an LL.M. degree at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. Prior to that, I worked on a broad range of corporate law, contract law and private public partnership matters in New York and Russia. Additionally, as a former intern in the Office of Audit and Investigations at the United Nations Development Programme, I gained experience conducting internal investigations.

When away from law, I enjoy travelling, skiing, playing tennis and the piano, and reading Russian literature.
