Maha is a 2L from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Temple University in 2019, receiving her B.A. in Political Science and serving as student commencement speaker at her graduation. Her Tunisian background and the diversity of the Philly community inspired her to pursue opportunities abroad. She studied abroad in Rome as a John Means Scholar and in Paris as a Fund for Education Abroad Fellow. Maha participated in Temple’s Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program and that inspired her senior thesis: “The Rise of Mass Incarceration in the United States.”
After college, Maha worked in finance at Vanguard for two years where she received her SIE, Series 7, and Series 63 licenses.
Last summer, she was a 1L LCLD Scholar and Summer Associate at Morgan Lewis in their Philadelphia office. In addition to serving as an Equity & Inclusion Fellow, Maha is a member of the Black Law Students Association, Middle Eastern Students Association at Penn Carey Law, and the Penn Graduate Boxing Club.
Next summer, she will be returning to the Morgan Lewis Philadelphia office as a Summer Associate and Diversity Fellow. After law school, she plans to practice corporate law, focusing on mergers and acquisitions and deal work. She applied for the E&I fellowship because she is passionate about building long-lasting community and empowering others to show up as their authentic selves in the legal profession. In her free time, Maha enjoys boxing, fashion, travel, and documenting her #CurlsintheLaw journey.
