S.V. Yakovleva

Svetlana Yakovleva is senior associate at De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek and was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Information Law (IViR). Her research cuts across different areas of law, such as privacy and data protection, European and international trade law, competition, consumer and cybersecurity law, with a particular focus on data governance. Svetlana's PhD dissertation combined the very different perspectives of international trade and EU data protection law and applied them together to cross-border data flows.

She received a degree in law (with distinction) from the National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow) in 2005, an LL.M in Law and Economics (EMLE) from the Erasmus University, Rotterdam and the University of Hamburg in 2007, and a research master in Information Law from the IViR in 2016.
