Dr Eda Sahin obtained her undergraduate degrees in law and business administration as a double major at Istanbul University. She was then awarded a scholarship from the Ministry of National Education to fund her postgraduate studies in the UK.
She did her LLM in competition law at the University of East Anglia and wrote a thesis on the passing on of overcharges to consumers. In 2016, she completed her PhD in competition law at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
Her PhD thesis examined collective redress procedures in competition law to address consumer damage claims from a doctrinal and contextual perspective. The subject matter of her thesis was highly topical, with ongoing consultations both at the EU and at national levels and the recent adoption of collective actions for consumers in the UK.
Since the completion of her PhD she has been publishing journal articles, books and book chapters in the areas of competition, contract and consumer law.
