Meghan Carpenter graduated cum laude from CSU and the University Honors Program with dual bachelor’s degrees in Political Science and Communication Studies; with a minor in Spanish and a certificate in Peace and Reconciliation Studies.
In the Fall of 2012, she entered the University of Wyoming College of Law in Laramie, WY. She will graduate in May 2015 and sit for the Colorado Bar Exam in July 2015.
She is currently the student director of the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Wyoming College of Law. “I love this job and it has given me many wonderful opportunities and solidified my interest in pursuing a career in immigration law. In the Clinic, we represent clients seeking asylum in the U.S. and handle many related immigration issues. The Clinic also works on a variety of human rights advocacy projects around the world, giving me the opportunity to travel to Namibia this past summer to research local customary law on women’s property and inheritance rights.”
