Pilar Lovelle is an International Human Rights Lawyer from Spain. In 2014 she finished her MSc Human Rights at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) graduating with distinction in International Criminal Law.
She previously completed a Double Degree in Law and Economics at the University Carlos III of Madrid and complemented her education with a course on Anglo American Law and an exchange program in the University of Amsterdam. She graduated in the top 1% of her course in Law and her academic performance was rewarded with numerous prizes and recognitions, including the ‘Award of Excellence’ of the Social Council of the University Carlos III and three ‘Excellence Scholarships’ given by the Government of Madrid.
In the last year of her studies, she received a scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Education to become research assistant, which gave her the opportunity to develop excellent quantitative and quality research skills. She has also worked at the prestigious Spanish NGO Movimiento por la Paz, where she gave face-to-face legal advice in Immigration Law.
Pilar Lovelle also founded two student associations at the university and organized a Series of conferences on International Conflicts and Human Rights and a Political Debate on Corruption and Transparency, which included the participation of academic experts and important Members of Parliament.
Finally, her passion for human rights protection has led her to engage in volunteering activities at both national and international levels. In Madrid, she participated in an educational project for children at risk of social exclusion and in a program to give legal assistance to Spanish prisoners in foreign jails. In South America, she joined the “Inka Way, meeting the Mayas”, a trip whose main purpose was to live with indigenous tribes, learn about their cultures and expose the serious violations of human rights that these tribes suffer.
