Since leaving CTLS, Elsa graduated with First-Class honours from King's College London. Three days after doing so, she joined Dentons UK & Middle East LLP as a paralegal in their real estate team. Outside of work, Elsa does Olympic Weightlifting and rock-climbing, and continues to do a lot of volunteer work as she did during her time at CTLS. She is hoping to specialise in Data and AI law, a passion which was born at CTLS. Elsa's time at CTLS is her fondest university memory, and she will forever cherish the ways in which it shaped her, and the amazing people it introduced her to.
Nathan was in the CTLS class of 2019, for which he was the Co-President of the Student Association. After graduating summa cum laude from the University of Fribourg in 2021, he was an intern in the legal affairs departments of the Swiss Mission to the European Union in Brussels and the Swiss Mission to the United Nations in New York. Since autumn 2022, he has been working as a graduate research assistant for Professor Dr. Franz Werro while he writes his PhD on protection against discrimination in Swiss contract law. In his free time, Nathan enjoys reading and travelling (especially if it means he can visit his CTLS friends!). He will always cherish his time at CTLS because it gave him the opportunity not only to forge long-lasting friendships, but also to live with his fabulous grandmother (Yiayia), who became somewhat of a CTLS urban legend after she had made her famous stuffed vine leaves for the international potluck! Please feel free to reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions (or need book recommendations!).
Elizabeth (Beth) is a graduate of the National University of Singapore and CTLS class of 2019. She is currently part of Baker McKenzie’s Singapore IPTech Team, her key work areas being data protection, e-commerce, technology and AI, intellectual property, and other regulatory issues. In her free time she crochets and enjoys hiking, rock climbing and cycling. She desperately misses CTLS and looks for any opportunity she can to make the 13 hour flight to say "Hi". Please feel free to reach out to her at email@example.com with any questions at all - as a junior lawyer she’s more than happy to offer any advice or insight she can!
