Ladies and Gentlemen,
My name is Agata Bzdyń and I am a bar-listed legal advisor at the Toruń District Bar of Legal Advisors.
In 2007 I graduated from the Faculty of Law and Administration at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. I was specialising in civil law, insurance law and private international law. Between 2010 and 2012 I attended a legal advisors’ training at the Toruń District Bar of Legal Advisors and I passed my bar exam in March 2013. I gained my professional experience while working for the best and biggest insurance companies, law firms and multinational consulting and audit corporations operating in Poland.
Since my early years I was interested in subjects connected with domestic and international human rights law and public international law. Therefore, I also graduated from the international relations studies at the Faculty of Historic Sciences at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. I was specialising in public international law. Because of that I also decided to take part in a competition for a position of a lawyer at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and after having been accepted I worked for the ECHR between October 2012 and September 2016. In June 2016 I also graduated from the Faculty of Law, Political Science and Management of the University of Strasbourg, specialising in the European system of protection of human rights. I am also a certified coach of the Council of Europe in HELP Programme (Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals).
Each year I act as a voluntary judge and and share my knowledge and experience with the law students from all parts of the world who compete in the biggest and most famous moot court competition concerning international law, imitating the hearing before the International Court of Justice in the Hague. The finals of the competition take place in Washington DC, USA.
I speak English and French fluently.
I opened my law firm in October 2016. My mission is to provide legal advice to individual and business clients. Besides constant striving to become perfect at what I do, while respecting the legal advisers’ deontology code, I always remember that each Client and each case is different and require an individual approach. This also helps me to avoid routine and maintain professional quality at my work.
