Megan Langhorne, B.A., JD is an articling student at AKM Law. Megan graduated from Queen's Law in 2021. She attended St. Francis Xavier for her undergraduate degree where she majored in Political Science and International Development. After travelling to Ghana to work with a community facing a natural resource conflict and learning about the human rights violations they were experiencing, Megan was inspired to go to law school to help people realize their rights.
During law school, Megan volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada, where she collaborated in writing informational materials on the rights of students with learning disabilities. Megan also took part in the Queen's Legal Aid clinic, where she represented a client in a Criminal Injuries Compensation Board claim. She also completed an internship with the Canadian Red Cross where she worked on various projects related to International Humanitarian Law, which sparked her interest in immigration law.
Last summer, Megan complemented her social justice focus by working with an Indigenous band council through the Debwewin Summer Law Student Program on a research project to strengthen and enforce the band's bylaws.
In her spare time, Megan enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing and canoeing.
Megan is driven by her passion for social justice and is excited to pursue a career in immigration law.
