Elena is a law student at St. John's College, University of Cambridge. She loves making videos, painting pictures which end up looking terrible, and drinking rose-flavoured water. 

She started Elena Makes Sense of Law to write about legal issues outside of her syllabus and to encourage other law students to look into legal topics they find interesting.


If you would like to join the discussion by writing a blog post about a legal topic of your choice, please refer to the guidelines for blog posts.

In addition to Elena Makes Sense of Law, Elena writes a personal blog about pretty much anything that is on her mind and is not law.

You can also follow her life in law school on her YouTube channel.
