Megan Morrisey has dedicated her legal career to serving those caught in our legal system and assisting marginalized individuals by effectively problem-solving their way to a just resolution. She was an assistant state public defender in the Milwaukee Trial Division until 2015. During her legal career, she taught evening courses in criminology and criminal law at Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC). Megan also investigated sexual discrimination, sexual harassment and Title IX discrimination complaints by faculty and student employees at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Recently, Megan was the community outreach director at Stork & Company, where she presented on infant safe-sleep education and distributed Baby Boxes to address and combat the high infant mortality rate in Milwaukee. Megan currently teaches interviewing and counseling in the Disputes Resolution Certificate Program at Marquette University Law School. This course incorporates techniques and artful skills in interviewing clients by casting actors from Milwaukee’s Repertory Theater in the role of clients. This course creates a unique opportunity for the law students to practice their newly refined techniques and skills in addressing the needs of their clients who are often frustrated and anxious about their legal dilemmas.
