Maggie Morgan is the new Albert M. Sacks Clinical Teaching & Advocacy Fellow at the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program. She is an alumna of both the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program (HIRC) and Harvard Law School. Maggie worked most recently as a Clinical Fellow in the Health Law & Policy Clinic at Harvard Law School. As a fellow, she worked on national and state-based health law and policy initiatives to increase access to healthcare for low-income citizens. She also developed several projects focused on improving access to health care for immigrants in the US. Before that, Maggie clerked for the Honorable Nanette K. Laughrey of the Western District of Missouri.
During law school, Maggie was a clinical student in both the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic and the Human Rights Clinic. She has interned at several international organizations including Asylum Access in Tanzania and the Supreme Court of Rwanda. Before law school, she earned an M.A. in International Relations at the University of Chicago, taught in Spain and Korea, and conducted research on the plight of migrant laborers in Jalisco, Mexico. She earned her A.B. from Harvard College, specializing in Government. Maggie loved her time as a student in HIRC and is thrilled to be back:
“I was really glad I did the immigration clinic. It really taught me a lot about how to be an attorney, particularly in terms of working with clients. There is such a breadth in the type of work that you do in the clinic, from honing your interviewing skills to writing legal briefs and memos, to arguing in front of a judge, so that was really helpful for me… I’m really happy to be at the clinic. It’s a really hospitable environment and everyone is so passionate about what they do.”
