Meagan Murray L’24
Meagan Murray hopes to dedicate her career to providing comprehensive and holistic support to youth and adults most impacted by systemic inequality in the criminal legal system. She was raised in Queens, New York and attended Villanova University where she received a B.A. in Sociology. Throughout her time at Villanova, she worked at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a camp that provides accessible programming to children with chronic and serious illnesses. She also volunteered with the Philadelphia Justice Project for Women and Girls – a developing non-profit organization that conducts research and comprehensive advocacy on behalf of women incarcerated for life and near-life sentences in Pennsylvania. These experiences helped develop her passion for equitable and holistic advocacy within the child welfare and criminal legal systems. At Penn Law, Meagan is involved with the Criminal Record Expungement Project and the Pennsylvania Innocence Project. Following her 1L year, she will be interning at the Defender Association of Philadelphia. In her free time, she enjoys long walks, yoga, and finding new vegetarian recipes.
