Since being admitted as a member of Faculty, Katerina's practice has focussed on Public Law, Immigration Law and Human Rights. She has broad experience in that field.

Katerina Stein grew up in Prague and Germany. She came to Scotland to teach at the University of Edinburgh. She attained a PhD in Literature there but went on to study Law and graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2007.

Before she was called to the Bar in 2013, she undertook a litigation traineeship specialising in personal injury cases, followed by work as Procurator Fiscal Depute, and in the area of immigration law. Katerina has been frequently instructed to appear in both the Inner and Outer Houses of the Court of Session, and in the First-tier and the Upper Tribunal. She has a particular interest in European Law and is a member of the Advocates Group for EU Law, EULAG (http://ageul.scot/).
