Profile

Megan joined Chambers in September 2019 after successfully completing pupillage under the supervision of Peter Horgan.

Megan is currently seconded to the Government of Jersey’s Financial Crime team.

CRIME

Megan accepts instructions for both prosecution and defence in the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court. She routinely appears in summary trials and appeals to the Crown Court against conviction and sentence and has represented defendants in the Youth Court. Megan’s detailed knowledge of cases has been recognised and she is noted for her courtroom manner.

During her pupillage, Megan completed watching briefs on a number of high-profile criminal trials involving charges of historic sexual abuse and gross-negligence manslaughter, as well as for multiple inquests.

LOCAL AUTHORITY

Following completion of a one month secondment with a City Council Legal team, Megan has continued to act in Local Authority prosecutions. Her cases have ranged from anti-social behaviour and education matters, to food safety and environmental offences. In the course of her work in this area, Megan has prepared written advices and appeared in both the Magistrates’ and County Courts.

MENTAL HEALTH

Megan has experience representing patients sectioned under the Mental Health Act before the First-Tier Tribunal and is looking to expand her practice in this area.

Prior to joining Chambers, Megan worked with the Advocacy team of an anti-modern slavery non-profit and tutored students applying to study Law at UK universities. Megan has also completed internships with several international organisations, monitoring developments in international criminal cases in The Hague and researching public health investments in Geneva.
