Camilla recently set up aCa School of Law offering academic support to International Law students, where she found a particular need for both academic guidance and English for Legal Purposes support, be it with their oral or written legal discourse. Camilla also offer’s help with careers and insight into the profession, all in the particular view of opening doors for aspiring pupil barristers.
Camilla stood for the Conservative Party in the local elections last year but lost by 200 to the Liberal Democrats. She is committed to working within BME communities and have found both the legal and political background to be particularly conducive in doing so.

With regards to her future plans, she hopes to begin studying for a PhD next year in the field of Human Rights – as she believes this will help her further strengthen the support she can offer to women.
