Georgia joined Birmingham Law School in 2021 as a Lecturer in Law. She holds an LLB from the University of Athens, an LLM in Civil Procedure from the same university, and an LLM in German Law with a focus on Private International Law from the University of Freiburg.

It was part of a larger project on procedural innovations and access to justice led by Prof. Xandra Kramer and funded by the European Research Council. Georgia was a visiting fellow at the Max Planck Institute on Procedural Law in Luxembourg, and the Singapore Management University, School of Law. She has also worked as a teaching assistant in Research and Writing Skills at Erasmus School of Law and in International and European Law at the China-EU School of Law, China University of Political Science and Law.

Research interests

Georgia's research interests lie in dispute resolution and private international law. During her PhD research, she focused on international commercial courts both in Europe and in Asia. Based on interviews conducted in the Netherlands and Singapore, she examined how international commercial courts make themselves more attractive to prospective litigants by engaging in forum selling and forum marketing. Georgia recently received a grant from the Socio-Legal Studies Association. In this research project, she examines the role of foreign judges in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts and their relationship to the local communities. 

More broadly, Georgia is interested in the growing convergence of public and private dispute resolution methods, the link between justice and economic reforms as well as sports arbitration.
