I have been a member of the Finnish Bar Association since 1989. I am a Doctor of Laws from University of Turku (2018). I have title of docent (procedural law) at University of Helsinki.
I have pled human rights cases. The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has issued a judgement in 19 of these cases.
