Elise Lauriot dit Prevost, graduated in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action

ELISE LAURIOT
Elise Lauriot dit Prevost has graduated in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action. She is a jurist in a law firm specialized in the fields of International Criminal Law, Human Rights and Terrorism.

What is your role and main responsibilities? 

I work at Impact Litigation, Jeanne Sulzr’s law firm (who is also a Professor at PSIA). I am a jurist, which means I am not a lawyer. I am currently undertaking a masters in law at a distance so that I can attempt the bar and become a lawyer. I work in a small firm so I have many different responsibilities which include taking notes at trials, currently the trial for the november 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. I also work on other international law cases where I review evidence, speak to victims, liaise with NGOs...

How did you secure this role? 

I originally started as an intern at the firm and luckily got offered a full time position at the end of my internship.

What is the most fascinating and/or surprising aspect at your role?

The most fascinating aspect of my role is being able to work on a variety of cases and projects, and having the feeling that the work I do positively contributes to their outcomes.

How did your PSIA experience help you with the role? 

PSIA gave me the opportunity to learn from a wide range of fascinating professionals who taught me many valuable skills along the way, including the person I currently work for, Jeanne Sulzer, Attorney at law in the fields of International Criminal Law, Human Rights and Terrorism.

What advice would you give to others? 

I would tell others to say yes to opportunities as you never know what they will bring and to invest yourself in your work.
