Camille Pannu directs the Water Justice Clinic, a project of the Aoki Center for Critical Race and Nation Studies. The Water Justice Clinic partners with stakeholders to improve the sustainability of rural water systems; advocate for the inclusion of rural and low-income communities in water management decisions; and ensure that all Californians have access to safe, clean and affordable drinking water.

She was a law clerk to the Honorable Richard A. Paez of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and to the Honorable Stefan R. Underhill of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. Pannu received her undergraduate and law degrees from UC Berkeley.
