Before studying law, Clara completed a bachelor’s degree in international relations and international law at Université du Québec à Montréal.

This bachelor’s degree gave her the opportunity to intern at the UQAM international human rights clinic. During this internship, she assisted the Shift organization with reporting the practices of major French businesses based on UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Alongside her studies, she is very interested in national and international politics.
