IntLawGrrls is delighted to welcome our new student editor, Lauren Marsh. We also extend a huge heartfelt thank you to outgoing student editor Marte Ingvildsdatter Jervan, and best of luck to her as she finishes the final semester of her master’s degree.
Lauren is currently a law student at Temple University Beasley School of Law, where she is a Law & Public Policy Scholar, a Beasley Scholar, a teacher’s assistant for Legal Research & Writing courses, a research assistant for Professor Margaret M. deGuzman, a staff editor of the Temple International & Comparative Law Journal, and a student fellow at the Institute for International Law and Public Policy. As a Law and Public Policy Scholar, Lauren worked as a policy research intern for AEquitas: The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women, a non-profit organization which develops, evaluates, and refines prosecution practices to increase victim safety and offender accountability in sexual and domestic violence cases.
Prior to entering law school, Lauren spent a year volunteering at Unidas Para Vivir Mejor (UPAVIM), a Guatemalan women’s cooperative working to empower women who live in marginalized communities on the outskirts of Guatemala City. As a result of this unique experience and her extensive travel in Europe, Central America, and South America, Lauren entered law school to ultimately effect positive change in the arena of international human rights. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Lauren graduated cum laude from Tulane University with a B.A. in Anthropology, a B.A. in Art History, and a minor in Architecture. Heartfelt welcome!
