Clara Sandoval is a qualified lawyer and a Senior Lecturer in the School of Law at Essex University, Acting Director of the Human Rights Centre, Co-Director of the Essex Transitional Justice Network and former Director of the LLM in International Human Rights Law.

She was a visiting professional at the International Criminal Court in 2005, providing the Court with analysis on the award of reparations for gross human rights violations by regional human rights courts, and has equally worked as a consultant for the ICC in the area of reparations.

Besides her academic commitments, Clara also engages in human rights litigation, training and capacity building with organisations such as REDRESS and the IBA and has been a consultant for the UN OHCHR for which she wrote the Special Issue on Transitional Justice and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the UN Guidance Note of the Secretary-General on Reparations for Conflict-Related Sexual Violence.
