Megan is currently a 3L at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law. She has dedicated her law school career to the practices of international law and environmental law and will graduate from law school with a certificate in both areas. To supplement her scholastic background in international law, Megan was a member of the Jessup International Moot Court team for two years, one year as a participant and one year as a coach. The Jessup is the world’s largest moot court competition, consisting of over 645 teams from 95 countries. At the Rocky Mountain Regional competition, Megan won two awards: the 4th place oralist award and the 2nd place award for best written memorial. Thanks to the hundreds of hours spent in preparation for the Jessup, Megan’s interest in the practice of international law was re-solidified.
Megan’s desire to practice international law arose at a young age. As a third-culture kid, Megan spent her childhood moving from country to country every three to five years. Megan is fluent in French and Spanish, and can converse in Mandarin. This international experience opened her eyes both to the importance of the global economy as well as the many opportunities it offers. While specializing in the practice of international maritime law is relatively unique, it is a natural path for Megan. When Megan wasn’t busy moving around the world, she was spending her summers in Northern Ontario. She spent the majority of her days on her family sailboat or racing dinghy sailboats. Now, with her work at IMG, she can combine her childhood passions and put them into practice.
In her free time, you can find Megan skiing in the winter and white-water rafting in the summer.
