Evelyn Borg Costanzi graduated as a Bachelor of Laws with Archaeology in 2011. She subsequently went on to achieve her law doctorate (LL.D) in 2014 and was called to the Bar of Malta in 2015.
Dr Borg Costanzi’s main interest is in human rights and constitutional law; however, she also practises in civil and administrative law. She first joined the firm as legal trainee to Dr Therese Comodini Cachia in 2013.
Dr Borg Costanzi’s doctoral thesis was entitled “The Significance and Scope of Separate Opinions at the European Court of Human Rights with particular reference to the influence of Judge Giovanni Bonello.” She has since acted as rapporteur to the Human Rights Programme of the University of Malta and submitted a consultation report to the Government of Malta, on behalf of the Programme, aimed at creating a robust human rights and equality framework in Malta. Thereafter, she delivered her first public speech on this report at the University of Malta’s Public Law Conference entitled: “The Constitution: Fifty Years of Proposals and Counter-Proposals” held on Human Rights Day in 2014.
In 2014, Dr Borg Costanzi received an award from the Strickland Foundation for her human rights literary contribution entitled: “There Exists a Breach of His Human Rights, Not Yours: How Malta lags behind in the Protection and Observance of Human Rights” and expanded her knowledge in the field through her participation in the course “The European System of Human Rights Protection” at the University of Viadrina, Germany.
Dr Borg Costanzi is a member of the Chamber of Advocates.
