Pericles is proud to announce Anastasia Frolova as our latest Honored Student. Anastasia has managed to balance a busy academic life, the demands of a legal career, and her studies at Pericles. Despite all of this, she has managed to end her first year of LL.M. studies at the top of her class.
In addition to her LL.M. studies at Pericles, Anastasia is also a 5th year student at the Kutafin Moscow State Law Academy. She is specializing in civil litigation and arbitration, and as part of her studies, has convened and participated in various conferences and moots, including the Constitutional Court Moot, and the annual student conference. Traditions and Novations in the Contemporary Russian Legal System, her thesis, was published in the conference digest.
Anastasia’s international legal experience includes the Jessup Moot Court Competition, the Pictet competition in international humanitarian law, and the Vis Moot International Commercial Arbitration Competition.
Anastasia’s career achievements are also impressive. She worked as a legal translator in Threefold, Ltd., and has interned at Freshfields Brukhaus Deringer, LLP, and Magisters, LLC. She is currently a Junior Lawyer in the Dispute Resolution Department at Magisters, LLC, and deeply involved in different firm projects, including SCC and ICAC arbitration.
All of this would be enough for most people, but Anastasia has no plans to slow down. She wants to do her PhD at Kutafin Moscow State Law Academy and then study abroad, preferably in US. She hopes that the experience received during the LL.M Program at Pericles will help her to achieve this goal.
Anastasia’s way of spending her free time can be described by her moto, a quotation from an Offspring song: “There’s more to living than only surviving; maybe I’m not there, but I’m still trying.” She adores hiking, horseback riding, gym, and playing guitar. If this were not enough, she also has a 2nd Adult Rank in figure skating.
Anastasia would like to thank all the professors for an amazing time spent during classes, and to give special thanks to Andrew Mendelssohn for being very attentive, helpful and for making her believe in herself.
