Education - The greatest Equalizer
A wise person once said "Get that Education and Your possibilities are endless".
I am proud to say that's exactly what Leila my wife did, she studied for many long years and persistence led her to achieve her goals..
This is her story:
The road to my Doctor in Laws
I started my studies in 2007 and got my Bachelor's Degree of Social Sciences in Law in 2011; then I continued with Masters Degree from 2011 till 2013 annd got Professional Master's Degree in Law and Qualification of a Lawyer in 2013
Then in 2013 I started doctoral studies and finished them in 2019, resulting in Doctor of Laws Degree in Civil Law (Dr. iur.)
Between 2014 and 2015, I participated in the Sciex-NMSch program, which was organized by the Swiss government. I also conducted the "Effectiveness of the Environmental Impact Assessment in the Baltic States and Switzerland" project at the University of Basel’s Institute for European Global Studies. From December 2015 to June 2017, I was an Erasmus Mundus fellow at the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria (South Africa) for the "Comparison of the legal framework of environmental impact assessment in the Baltic States and South Africa" project. The results of both projects are integrated into my doctoral thesis "Current Issues of Legislation on Environmental Impact Assessment".
Currently, I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Judicial Science, Faculty of Law, University of Latvia.
My postdoctoral project is entitled “Effective Maritime Spatial Planning Regulation Framework and Implementation Challenges and Best Practice Examples for the Context of the Baltic Sea” in the framework of the specific support objective activity 188.8.131.52. “Post-doctoral Research Aid” of the Republic of Latvia, funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
I would also like to express my deepest gratitude to my doctoral supervisor Professor Ilma Čepāne for support, advice and encouragement.
