Edit Frenyó

“BC’s LL.M. was one of my most rewarding and inspiring experiences. The School’s commitment to public service and its interdisciplinary approach to human rights broadened my perspectives enormously. The program’s individual focus provided an important sense of recognition, and faculty and administrators helped each of us make the most of our time. Studying among American law students constantly prompted us to approach our areas of interest comparatively. Whether one comes with a clear professional agenda or in search of inspiration, BC Law is an ideal environment to network, study and realize one’s goals.”

Edit Frenyó has lived a passion for children’s rights since her teenage years.  After completing her Dr. Iur., she pursued notarial training in Budapest and began a Ph.D. at Hungary’s leading law faculty, focusing on children’s contact rights in transborder situations.  She is also a long-time volunteer in child welfare organizations, working in a children’s clinic, teaching English and mentoring. 

Edit’s LL.M. coursework focused on human rights and family law, and her independent study concerned the Hague Conference’s work on child custody and abduction issues. After completing the LL.M., she spent a year doing interdisciplinary research at BC Law as a Visiting Scholar, and she is now a candidate for the S.J.D. degree at Georgetown University. She plans to practice and teach in the area of children’s welfare, acting as a mediator between civil society and the legal sphere.
