    Curriculum Vitae

    Candida (Rome, 1986) is a lecturer and researcher at the Centre for the Study of European Contract Law (CSECL). Before joining CSECL in July 2011, she studied law at the University of Pisa and at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, also in Pisa. In 2009 she also spent an Erasmus period at Université Paul Cezanne- Aix-Marseille III  (France). 

    Her PhD research concerns the evolution and justification of unfair terms control against the background of contractualisation of consumption and labour relationships. Her current research interests range from contract theory to consumer protection and the role of evidence-based medicine in marketised healthcare.

    Since January 2016, Candida coordinates the LLM programme European Private Law. In 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 she has been a member of the Board of Studies for the Bsc programme PPLE and, in her capacity as EPL coordinator, for the Law Faculty's international LLM programmes.
