Legal News Cy: Tell us a bit about yourself. What do you do? Where are you based at the moment?
Diana Constantinides: I am a dual qualified lawyer in Cyprus and the UK. I currently practice law before the domestic courts in the UK and represent a group of victims before the International Criminal Court. I am based in London although i find myself refusing any geographical limitation, hence being a global citizen instead. My days are mostly about trials and preparation but i pursue activities beyond law. I am helplessly a coffee lover, an investor on friendships and family moments. Nothing beats a brunch with friend on a Sunday morning discussing about philosophy, politics and life.

LNCy: What exactly is Rolesa and how it is helping lawyers in Cyprus?
DC: Rolesa is the reflection of a positive contribution to future lawyers. I grew frustrated of continuously seeing students struggling to prepare and study for the exams alongside everything else that is thrown at them in the same year. I am delighted to be sharing with the Cypriot legal community Ixion, which is a revolutionary online learning platform that prepares trainee lawyers effectively and meticulously for their Cyprus Bar Exam. After all, trainee lawyers are up to a challenge starting a full time job, travelling long distances to attend lectures, spending time on looking for the right content, studying for the exams and, of course, the pressure of passing them can have negative effects on their health and personal life. The idea of Ixion was to ease the pain and simplify the preparation process. Rolesa found the best lawyers to create the best learning content so that trainee lawyers can have the best result.
