I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1979. I was educated at the 2nd State Secondary School of Thessaloniki (1991-1997), where I completed my high school studies with honors (excellent, 19.9 out of 20). I studied law at the Aristotle University Law School of Thessaloniki (1997-2001) and graduated in October 2001 (LL.B) with an average grade of 8.1 out of 10 (very good). From September 1999 to March 2000), as a student in the ELPIS program, I attended courses on German and European Law at the Hannover University (Germany) Law Faculty. During my stay in Germany, I also participated in a seminar on comparative private law held by Professor Dr. H. Fenge and completed (in German) a comparative paper on ‘The pre-contractual liability (culpa in contrahendo) under German and Greek law’ (‘Culpa in contrahendo nach deutschem und griechischem Recht’).
In October 2001, having succeeded in the respective entrance examination, I was accepted to the two-year post-graduate (LL.M) course on Civil Law, Labour Law and Civil Procedure at the Aristotle University Law School of Thessaloniki. I attended the course from October 2001 to June 2003 and completed it with an excellent total grade (10 out of 10). My final paper on ‘The non reformatio in pejus principle in civil procedure’, which was also graded excellent (10 out of 10), was published in a Greek legal journal. In the meanwhile, during the winter semester 2001-2002, again as a student in the ELPIS program, I completed a post-graduate paper (in German) on ‘The impact of the res judicata effect on third parties’ (‘Die Drittwirkung der Rechtskraft’) under the supervision of Professor Dr. B. Oppermann (Hannover University Law Faculty). In March 2002, I successfully defended this essay orally before a three-member examination committee and was granted the ‘Magister Legum Europae (MLE)’ (magna cum laude) by the Law Faculty of the Hannover University.
After having completed the obligatory military service to the Greek State, I was accepted by the Aristotle University Law School of Thessaloniki as a Ph.D-candidate. In October 2011, I completed my dissertation on “Creditor’s claims depending on a suspensive condition and the demanded fulfillment of the condition as a prerequisite to enforcement proceedings” (in Greek). In May 2012, I successfully defended orally my dissertation before a seven-member board of Professors. In June 2012, I was awarded the Ph.D title with the highest distinction (summa cum laude). My dissertation was published in January 2013.
I am a member of the Thessaloniki Bar Association (in full practice since September 2003).
Since 2008, as a Ph.D-candidate and afterwards as a Doctor Juris, I have been occupied as a scientific assistant at the Aristotle University Law School of Thessaloniki, supporting the courses of undergraduate seminars mainly in procedural law.
SELECTED PUBLICATIONS / RESEARCH
- ‘Creditor’s claims depending on a suspensive condition and the demanded fulfilment of the condition as a prerequisite to enforcement proceedings” (in Greek, pp. 637 + XVIII, Sakkoulas Publications, Athens-Thessaloniki, 2013). My doctoral research was carried out in Greece, Germany and France. The subject of the dissertation has been an exploration of Art. 915, 921 IV of the Greek CCP, extensively compared with the respected provisions of the German ZPO (§§ 726, 756, 751), Austrian EO (§§ 7, 8), Swiss SchKG (§§ 69ff.) and Swiss ZPO (§§ 338ff.), French CPC (Art. 551), French CC (Art. 2213) and French CPCE (Art. L 111-2, L 211-1, L 221-1 a, L 231-1 and L 311-2), Belgian CC (Art. 1186) and Belgian CPC (Art. 1494) and, finally, English CPR [Sch 2 CCR Ord. 26 r 1 (1)]. The main cycles of problems arising under these provisions refer to the specific determination of: (a) the categories of claims depending on condition, which fall under the aforesaid provisions, (b) the demanded means of proof of the suspensive condition’s fulfilment and (c) the perspectives of debtor’s opposition to the respective enforcement proceedings.
