Eun Hye Kim is a doctoral researcher at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence. She is writing her PhD thesis entitled “Judicial Actors as Agents of Legal Change” under the supervision of Professor Urška Šadl. In 2019, Eun Hye obtained an LL.M. in Comparative, European and International Laws from the EUI and also taught the course “Introduction to EU Competition Law”.
During her research stay in Washington D.C. as International Scholar in Residence, Eun Hye seeks to carry out an empirical analysis of how judges review the FTC’s cease-and-desist orders adopted under Section 5 of the FTC Act. She will explore the institutional dynamics between judicial actors and competition authorities from a comparative perspective.
Before coming to the EUI, Eun Hye received extensive training in three different European jurisdictions and was awarded the title “European Lawyer” upon completion of her studies in 2017. From 2012 to 2015, she studied at the Humboldt University of Berlin where she successfully passed the first state exam. Within the framework of the Humboldt European Law School, she spent two years abroad and holds a Master in European Law from the University of Paris – Panthéon-Assas and an LL.M. in Competition Law from King’s College London. While studying in London, Eun Hye worked as a research assistant in the Competition Law Department of Linklaters LLP.
