Laura Frederika Lalíková completed her LL.B. in International Civil Law at National University of Ireland, Galway, and her LL.M. in European Law at Utrecht University. Before joining Utrecht University as a PhD candidate, Laura worked as a research assistant at the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg, where her research focused on the topics of EU agencies, EU administrative law, and EU economic and fiscal policy coordination.

Laura’s PhD research focuses on whether and how access to big tech platforms can and should be secured by using the European competition law’s essential facilities doctrine, and/or by drawing upon public utility theory.
