Paola Tiffer

Paola is from Costa Rica, where she worked as a criminal lawyer in a private practice. Through her studies and work experience she  discovered a passion for human rights and therefore decided to move to Leiden to do an LLM in Public International Law and pursue a career in human rights.

Her main interests are human rights, criminal law and environmental law. Moreover, one of her biggest goals is to create a regional non-profit organisation that focuses on the protection of people who are in vulnerable situations and suffering from human rights transgressions.
