While in law school, Megan served as an Executive Editor for the Duquesne Law Review.  She was a member of the trial team that won the regional ABA Labor and Employment Trial Competition in Chicago, Illinois and went on to place third in the national competition.  She was awarded the Shalom Moot Court Award for outstanding trial advocacy and was awarded membership to the Louis L.
