Prior to joining the Bar, Allegra worked as a Caseworker at Advocate. She is currently in her second six accepting instructions across all areas of Chambers’ work including Court of Protection, inquests and inquiries, clinical negligence, professional discipline, and police law.

Allegra is a member of the Government Legal Department Junior Junior Scheme.

Allegra worked as a Research Assistant in mental capacity law at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and she was appointed as an Alumni Editor of the LSE Law Review.

Experience & expertise

During her first six, Allegra was supervised by Clare Hennessy, Alexander dos Santos and Frances McClenaghan. She was exposed to a breadth of Chambers’ work including a two-week jury inquest, a clinical negligence trial, and the high-profile insider dealing trial of FCA v MZ & SZ at Southwark Crown Court.

Prior to the Bar

Allegra worked as a Caseworker at Advocate where she was involved with hundreds of cases across all areas of law, and she specialised in cases of domestic abuse involving vulnerable applicants.

Allegra has also volunteered with various legal charities. On behalf of the Disability Law Service, she led a team to produce a policy paper on out-of-area inpatient psychiatric care. The paper was used by pressure group Rethink to launch their ‘Out of Sight, Out of Mind’ campaign.

She also volunteered with the Freedom Law Clinic, where she assisted with an appeal against a joint enterprise murder conviction.


  • Allegra co-wrote an article which was published in the International Journal of Law and Psychiatry in 2022, entitled ‘What place has “capacity” in the criminal law relating to sex post JB?’.

  • Allegra wrote an article on psychiatric illness and assisted dying which was published in the LSE Law Review in 2021. The article is entitled ‘Analysing the Issue of Psychiatric Assisted Dying from the Perspective of Parity: Does Parity Demand Access?’ and it is adapted from her undergraduate dissertation, for which she won the LSE Law Department Prize for Best Dissertation 2019/20.
