Prior to joining LMH, Bogojevic was an Associate Professor of Law at Lund University in Sweden (2011-2016). Bogojevic received her LLB with German Law from King’s College London and Passau Universität, LLM from the College of Europe, Bruges, and DPhil from Oxford University.
She has been a DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) research scholar at the Max Planck Institute for Collective Goods in Bonn, and a visiting doctoral Hauser Global Fellow at the New York University School of Law. She has also been a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of New South Wales (UNSW Australia) and at UC Berkeley School of Law.
Bogojevic researches in the areas of environmental law, EU law, constitutional law and administrative law, which are also subjects she teaches in.

To this end, she discusses the role of states and markets in emissions trading regimes in her book, 'Emissions Trading Schemes: Markets, States and Law', published by Hart Publishing (2013).
Her current research looks at the adjudication of environmental rights with a similar focus on the public/private divide in environmental law. In 2016, she was awarded the Nils Klim prize for her outstanding scholarly contribution to environmental law and emissions trading.
