Marta Cartabia (Ph.D. 1993)
Judge of the Italian Constitutional Court
Testimonial interview on the EUI YouTube channel
'Life in the Law Department was always very rich, especially for the institutional programme of workshops and seminars. Usually, during the Ph.D. years, a researcher is tempted to spend all their time on his/her topic of research, and this is not possible at the EUI, because there are so many interesting opportunities to take part in seminars that you are really invited not to stay only on your research project. It was also a very challenging period because I was forced to broaden my mind, to open it to different experiences, different languages, and a different approach to the study of Law. I discovered a new world about Law and that was very important for me and made me really fond of the work that I was doing here'
