JURIST announced a new executive director this week. This week the legal news service's Board of Directors approved the appointment of Megan McKee (Pitt Law ’12; McGill University MA ’14) as Executive Director, taking over from Andrew Morgan who took a position as staff counsel at PNC Bank in May.
McKee is a member of the New York bar and joins JURIST from the Ph.D. program at the University of Maryland, where she taught classes in history and worked as a grant writer for a Maryland law professor seeking funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. As a student at Pitt Law, McKee was a senior member of JURIST’s editorial staff and led JURIST’s student commentary service. While a law student, she worked as a research assistant for JURIST Editor-in-Chief and Professor Bernard Hibbitts and Professor Vivian Curran.
Hibbitts noted McKee has a passion for public service and brings with her a broad international perspective. McKee has lived in three different countries for a significant period, and she speaks Spanish, French, and Arabic.
