Aparnaa has recently completed her law masters (LLM) in Intellectual Property and Information Law at King’s College London, with a particular focus on data privacy and the information society, having previously graduated with an LLB from City University London.
Her studies provided Aparnaa with an opportunity to undertake an in-depth study of the EU data protection framework in comparison to the United States, giving her a detailed understanding of the EU’s GDPR. Aparnaa’s master’s dissertation focused on blockchains versus the law and whether blockchains and data privacy can co-exist.
Although this is Aparnaa’s first role in IP and Information Law, she brings with her skills in communication, client relations, strong organisational abilities and attention to detail from a number of recruitment management roles.
