Lara joined Liberty in February 2017, having worked in private practice since 1998.
Since qualifying as a solicitor, Lara has specialised in public law challenges against the Government and local authorities. Lara has represented some of the most vulnerable people in society, including migrants, asylum seekers, refugees, children and the disabled, forcing public authorities to abide by the Human Rights Act.

A Liberty member since her student days, Lara now assists migrants and all those who are victims of the Government's "hostile environment" policies as part of our legal team.
