Svetlana has been an intern at Robin Twaddle & Associates since late 2019. Working here has exposed her to a variety of areas, primarily on registration of the deceased estate, legal research, ex parte proceeding, and client assistance.
With an LLM from Burgas Free University in Bulgaria, majoring in European Community Law, Economic Law, and Administration of Justice and an International Financial Services qualification from The Guy Morel Institute at the University of Seychelles, she is pursuing a second LLM at WITS in the field of International Economic Law. As a former mountaineer, and a member of the Bulgarian national team until 2003, Svetlana has climbed several continental peaks. She loves winter, snow, and ice – but as for the blue sky of South Africa, she has never seen anywhere else. In her spare time, she likes to experiment with noisy toys like the chainsaw, jigsaw, routers and, most recently, was spot welding. Her motto is ‘nothing is impossible’.
