As the lead of Sustainable Economies Law Center’s Fellowship Program, Cameron is passionate about supporting lawyers committed to building resilient local economies. Through the Fellowship Program, lawyers receive training, mentorship, and resources as they grow their law practices. As legal support to the Grassroots Finance Program, Cameron strives to reduce barriers to financing and investing in community enterprises, and coordinates SELC’s research and education efforts in furtherance of that goal. Cameron also provides legal support to the Resilient Communities Legal Cafe Program, which provides direct legal services to individuals and groups creating community-based enterprises. Cameron particularly enjoys helping make legal services more accessible and hopes to one day see legal cafes like SELC’s all over the world.
Before becoming a staff attorney at SELC, Cameron opened a small law practice in Sacramento, CA while participating in SELC’s Fellowship Program. Her law practice serves small creative businesses, cooperatives, and social enterprises.
Prior to starting her own law practice, Cameron practiced health law as a legislative attorney with the California Office of Legislative Counsel. She graduated cum laude from California Western School of Law in 2009. During law school, Cameron was an Anson Levitan Law Clerk with the Legal Aid Society, Inc. of San Diego, interned with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Southern District of California, and held a judicial externship with the Honorable Magistrate Judge Stormes in the United States District Court, Southern District of California.
When she is not practicing law, Cameron dabbles with letterpress printing. She is member of the Big Tomato Letterpress Guild, a group of letterpress printers from Sacramento and surrounding areas.
