Charlotte holds an MA(Hons) from the University of Edinburgh in History, an MSc with distinction from University of Glasgow (human rights and international politics), and a doctorate in law from the London School of Economics. She was the Judge Higgins Scholar (2008-2010) and LSE Fellow (2008-10) during doctoral studies. She was a Queen Mother Scholar at Middle Temple and is a practising barrister (England & Wales, 2009).
