Elie Beyrouthy
(LL.M. ’06)


From Beyrouthy April 12, 2011:
After completing my LL.M. degree in May 2006, I continued my externship in the chambers of Chief Judge James Rosenbaum (’69) until the end of July 2006.

After that, I went back to France where I taught one class for the fall semester at the law school of the University of Lyon. The course was an introduction to the U.S. Supreme Court. The students were very interested in comparing the rules and functioning of the highest court in the U.S. with some French and European high courts. The class was taught in English which also gave a different flavor to it.

In January 2007, I started my job at the European Banking Federation as a Legal adviser in charge of files related to the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing as well as some retail banking files.

For three years, I have drafted the EBF positions on the above-mentioned issues and negotiated with members to find compromises and good arguments.

In March 2010, I took a new challenge within the EBF as responsible for public affairs where I was in more contact with the European Institutions trying to advocate our views and help rebuild the reputation of the banking industry in the European Union.
