Spotlight on you!

Nicos Rotsides

When did you graduate from EUC / CC?

Would you share with us a highlight of your university experience? Is there something that you will always remember?
The professors and professional staff had a very friendly, accommodating and helping attitude while at the same time maintaining standards and professionalism. This was very nice. A highlight was that together with other students and with the help and sometimes funding of the university we were involved in several international conferences. This remains in my memory as a highlight of my EUC years.

How did your career progress and what position do you hold now?
I graduated in 2005 with a BA Social Sciences. Then I got a law degree and then I went on to do the Barrister Vocational Course in the UK and qualify as a barrister. I spent some time teaching law to undergraduate and graduate students at City University in London and then came back to practice law as a litigator in Cyprus. In 2011 I set up my own law firm that specializes in claimant personal injury law where I manage and practice to date.

What would your peers and friends say your strengths and weaknesses are?
Strengths: creative, optimistic, resilient, disciplined, motivated, strategist, methodical, dreamer, good with people. Weaknesses: impulsive, not disciplined at times, too optimistic at times, not very organized, not very good with people.

Tell me about a person or an event that has markedly changed you.
2004 referendum for the ANAN plan.
My cycling coach when I was a teen Mr Akis Asproftas.

Have you ever tried something and failed, but were glad you did it?
Many times.

What advice do you have for young graduates?
Today’s working environment is tough. Expect little, dream big, appreciate what you have and make sure you like your daily routine.
