Our Team \ Meghan Phillips (US and Public International Law Editor)

Biography

Meghan is from an American military family, and after her father’s deployment to Iraq, she developed a desire to one day work in diplomacy and international affairs. To pursue this calling, she attended the University of Notre Dame where she majored in Political Science and French.

After graduating in 2011, she worked with the Victim/Witness Division of Ohio’s Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office. In this role, she would travel to area hospitals to meet survivors of sexual assault to provide them with support and information during their forensic exams. She also volunteered with the Miami Valley’s Catholic Social Services’ Refugee Resettlement division.

This work led to the realisation that her abstract hope to work in foreign policy needed some concrete knowledge that only an education in law could provide. She decided to pursue her law degree at William and Mary in Virginia, and focused her legal studies on international law, immigration, and human rights.

During law school, she interned at two non-profit organisations focused on the rights of refugees and humanitarian immigration relief, assisted Professor Christie Warren with comparative law and post-conflict justice research, and served as an article editor on the William and Mary Law Review.

After law school, she interned at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, which investigates and prosecutes the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. She currently is pursuing an LLM in Public International Law at Queen Mary University of London, and is a member of the Virginia State Bar.
