Ioana Bratu is affliated with the Open University Law School.
Ioana is a civil law-trained lawyer, working on her cross-qualification. She completed her bachelor degree in civil law, as well as a Master’s degree in International Arbitration, at the Faculty of Law, University of Bucharest. After that, she completed an LL.M. in International Dispute Resolution at University College London. In the course of her cross-qualification, she studied for her GDL at BPP London, and did her two-year legal training with a US arbitration-focused law firm in London, and with a big energy company, in their litigation and arbitration department in London.
Ioana’s research as a PhD candidate deals with the impact of the platform phenomenon on traditional legal ordering. The novelty of her approach comes from employing a General Systems Theory methodology in the analysis of two areas of research that are usually kept separate, legal order theory and platform technology.
