Mr. Sejdiu received his Bachelor of Science degree at The College of New Jersey in 2001, majoring in International Business and Economics. In 2004, he received his Juris Doctor degree from Widener University in Delaware, U.S.A.

Also during his juris doctoral studies, he was a Managing Editor of the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law, a leading national journal. He thereafter passed the bar exams and received his attorney licenses in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Initially, he clerked for the New Jersey Supreme Court and then joined a prestigious Philadelphia law firm, representing Fortune 500 clients on corporate and commercial issues.  He also holds an LLM in Banking and Financial Law from the University of Boston School of Law.

Mr. Sejdiu returned to Kosova at the end of 2007 and was hired by Bearing Point (a USAID contractor) as a Legal Adviser on a project supporting the Kosova Assembly, and later the Office of the President of the Republic of Kosova, and as a commercial law trainer for the Kosovo judiciary and Chamber of Advocates. Mr. Sejdiu served as the Legal Adviser and Counsel to the President of the Republic of Kosovo from 19 March 2008, up until the end of the President’s term in September 2010. Ever since 2010, Mr. Sejdiu has served the legal needs of many clients in Kosovo and beyond.

He also taught Business Law and International Economic Law for undergraduate and masters students at the Law Faculty of the University of Prishtina and the Economic Faculty of Riinvest College. In the past, Mr. Sejdiu also made regular teaching visits at the prestigious Imperial College London, where he taught MBA students on corporate social responsibility and business ethics. Mr. Sejdiu currently teaches as an adjunct at the American University in Kosovo (AUK) the courses “Law & Society” and “Modern Constitutional Law.” He currently teaches in the area of business law, corporate governance, and financial services law at the prestigious Swiss School of Economics, as well as UBT College.

Mr. Sejdiu has been published in the areas of commercial, international, and constitutional law.  He has served in the past as a member of the Board of Directors of the Kosovo Foundation for Open Society and was also Chairman of the Board of the Civil Rights Program / Kosovo, which serves the legal interests of the underprivileged and unrepresented citizens of Kosovo. Until his term as an MP began, he also served as a member of the Board of Directors of KEP Trust, a leading microfinance institution in Kosovo.
