Ms. Guerra received her Law Degree from Lausanne University, Switzerland, in 2005, and her Masters of Law in Criminology and Criminal Justice in 2008. After working as a civil servant and law clerk for three years, she was admitted to the State of Vaud Bar in February 2013. Following her Bar admission, Giada practiced law in her hometown of Lausanne for almost two years.
Throughout her experience as a domestic lawyer in Switzerland, Giada devoted a great portion of her time to defending fundamental human rights. For instance, Giada advocated against the hazardous living conditions suffered by inmates during temporary custody.
Giada speaks French, Italian, English, and German, and her interest in international matters stems from a life-changing journey she made to South Africa in 2010. There, she spent six months volunteering with a local NGO devoted to the advocacy of Human Rights and HIV/AIDS. Giada is therefore thrilled to serve as a Legal Avdisor at the IJP, and is eager to expand her knowledge on international law alongside wonderful professionals who have dedicated most of their lives to such an honorable cause.
