Camilla Gee

Lecturer in Law

Stella Turk Building Pod 3



Camilla studied Law and Sociology as an undergraduate. She then attended the College of Law in Guildford achieving honours in her Solicitors’ Final Examination. Passionate about legal aid work and access to justice Camilla practiced in a high street law firm until she took up a post as in-house solicitor with a National Teaching Union where she worked until September 2021.

In practice Camilla specialised in employment law and regulatory law representing teachers in employment tribunals and at professional conduct hearings. She was also involved in work related personal injury claims and a number of Camilla’s cases reached the appeal courts including the stress at work claim, Barber v Somerset County Council [2004] which remains the leading case in this field.  Camilla and her colleagues also won the Lawyer Award for Employment Team of the Year following the success of Barber.

Camilla enjoyed combining the practice of Law with her teaching roles for a number of years. She previously taught on the LPC and joined Exeter as a visiting lecturer in 2015.  Camilla took up her current post as Lecturer in Law based at the Penryn campus in September 2021. Camilla is also the Departmental Lead for Employability and Placements and the Year 2 Coordinator.
