Eleonora is the head of the Memorial Human Rights Center project, “Legal Clinic for Applicants to the European Court of Human Rights”. In this role, she develops and leads seminars for lawyers and law students on the practice and procedures of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), teaches interns how to take cases to the ECtHR and develops strategies for broadening the scope of the project’s work. As a Fellow, Eleonora will work to transform the Legal Clinic for Applicants to the ECtHR into a more independent and mobile organization.
