Isolde joined academia as a tutor in the Department from 2004, as an academic associate in 2007 and as a temporary part-time junior lecturer in 2008. Isolde was appointed as a lecturer in the Department of Jurisprudence (then known as the Department of Legal History, Comparative Law and Legal Philosophy) in February 2011. She obtained her LLB cum laude in 2006, and an LLM degree in 2009. She graduated with a Doctor of Laws degree in 2017.
