Elizabeta Zirnstein graduated from the Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana, where she also obtained her Master's degree and Ph.D. She successfully defended her doctoral thesis entitled "Legal regulation of innovation in the employment relationship - between fairness and efficiency" in 2012, under Dr. Špelce Mežnar. She also studied at the University of Cambridge, where she specialised in European Law. At the Faculty of Management, as an Associate Professor and senior research fellow, she teaches various law courses at all three levels of study (Bachelor, Master, and Doctoral). She is characterised by her constant integration of theory and practice. Her research work is mainly in the field of labour law and, in recent years, also in the area of the health law. The latter is developed within the UP Faculty of Health Sciences, where she is a lecturer in law at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Her personal bibliography includes numerous original scientific articles published in national and international scientific journals, and she is also very keen to present the results of her work in monographic publications.
