She completed the law course at the University of Malta in 2014, summa cum laudae, and today practises as a Court litigation lawyer in private practice and is legal counsel to Aġenzija Appoġġ. Daniela has a deep interest in family, gender and child law. Her doctoral thesis, titled “Mandatory Reporting: What are the implications of making reporting child abuse mandatory?” received the Professor Attard award for best thesis in 2014 and has been incisively reported in the media. Moreover, she acted as Secretary to the Drafting Team of the Child Protection (Out-of-Home) Care Bill which was presented to Parliament by the then Hon. Minister Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca. Daniela provides training on the law relating to out-of-home care in Malta and has adapted the law to a child-friendly version. She has also acted as legal counsel to the National Foster Care Association Malta. Daniela was a co-founder and an executive team member of the NGO Gender Liberation which advocates for and supports people within the trans* gender variant and intersex continuum and their relatives. She has recently attended training and studied the reality of parental alienation and its implications on the children involved. She intends to further study this reality and explore good practices to eliminate it. At Polaris, Daniela will exercise her passion for family law, gender law and child law, and continue to expand her field of work and knowledge.
