Megan Corrarino is a fiction writer and lawyer specializing in international human rights and complex cross-border dispute resolution. Her creative work explores and utilizes the complementary relationship between law, which allows for change within an existing framework; art, which encourages thinking about what other, more humane frameworks might be possible; and activism and policymaking, which offer tools for making change to the existing framework. Her work has appeared in literary journals, short form film, and academic and practitioners’ publications.
Megan’s commitment to intersectional labor rights is informed by past work with organizers in occupations historically excluded from full labor protections. She has served as an international law consultant for a global coalition of member-based organizations of women in the informal economy; law clerk at a Legal Aid office for Oregon farmworkers; and volunteer consultant to grassroots networks around the world advocating for ratification of the International Labour Organization’s Domestic Workers Convention.
Megan holds a BA from the University of Chicago, a Master’s of Public Affairs from Princeton, and a JD from Yale Law School. In her legal career, she has worked as a litigation associate at a global law firm; Robert L. Bernstein International Human Rights Fellow at Human Rights First; and law clerk to a federal judge on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. She was previously a Fulbright Scholar to Brazil. Megan is currently working on several fiction projects, including a novel set in her home state of Oregon exploring agricultural labor and how storytelling shapes our ideas of self, community, and justice.
