Olga Diaconu

Olga is a  junior lawyer  at Avornic and Partners in Chișinău, specialising in Property Law and Real Estate Law. She has previous experience junior lawyer in the ”Botanica” Lawyers Associate Bureau in Chișinău, as a legal adviser in a LLC specialised in legal services, and as a legal document editor for an American company established in Chișinău.

Besides legal activity, Olga is involved in projects that address civic and legal education, as well as corruption and lack of transparency in the decision making process of public authorities.

Her action plan takes a bottom-up approach to improving good governance, transparency and access to justice at a community-level - in this case the town of Ioloveni. This includes trialling a series of citizens’ education initiatives aimed at raising awareness of both rights and responsibilities - especially among young people - and improving citizens’ involvement in local decision-making.
