Arina Gorbatyuk

Early in my professional life, I discovered my passion for IP law and made the decision to relocate abroad to study this fascinating field of law. While living and working in a foreign environment presented its challenges, the experience proved to be both mind-opening and enriching.

I started off my IP law career as a PhD researcher at KU Leuven. During this period, I earned my degree, secured two national academic grants, published several papers, and delivered presentations at multiple international venues. In 2019-2023, I also taught the course ‘International and European Patent Law’ of the KU Leuven Master of Intellectual Property and ICT Law.
