Camilla’s Legal Heroes
Atticus Finch & Karon Monaghan
My legal hero is fictional; Atticus Finch from the novel To Kill a Mockingbird. It was the book I read in my childhood, which first got me interested in law and issues of discrimination. My real life lawyer hero is Karon Monaghan QC. She is a very approachable barrister who has been incredibly infulential in the area of discrimination law. She also acted for Unison in the case of R (on the application of UNISON (Appellant) v Lord Chancellor (Respondent)  which is such an important case for access to justice and the rule of law.
