My name is Megan “Meg” Glasmann. I am currently working as a judicial law clerk at the Utah Court of Appeals for the chambers of the Honorable Presiding Judge Michele Christiansen Forster. Following my clerkship, I plan to return to the local Utah firm Mitchell, Barlow & Mansfield as a litigation associate.
EDUCATION. I am a recent Juris Doctor graduate of the Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah. Prior to law school, I completed an M.Ed. and M.Phil in Educational Psychology (emphasis in School Psychology). During my undergraduate career, I attended Stanford University for one academic year before transferring due to athletic reasons to the University of Utah to complete my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology.
LEADERSHIP. Throughout law school, I held numerous leadership positions on law student, state, and national chapter boards. These included roles such as Student Bar Association Vice President and Federal Bar Association President at my law school, sitting as a student board member on both the Utah Federal Bar Association and Women Lawyers of Utah boards, and as 10th Circuit Representative to the Federal Bar Association National Law Student Board.
AWARDS. I received several awards in law school, most notably the 2022 Robert A. McNew Federal Bar Association $5,000 Scholarship.
RESEARCH. I worked as a research assistant to Professor Nancy McLaughlin and Dean Teneille Brown during law school. Later, I worked under the guidance of Professor Leslie Francis as a Utah Center for Excellence in Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (UCEER) Research Fellow. I presented my research and written work product at the National Human Genome Research Institute Trainee Conference in April 2023 and at Columbia University in May 2023.
LAW REVIEW. I served on the Utah Law Review for two years. I worked as a junior staffer, providing Bluebook copywork and pullwork support, and later as a Note and Comments Editor. As an NCE, I reviewed all student submissions for their application to the journal and subsequently provided detailed feedback to a smaller pool of students at several points during the year.
TEACHING EXPERIENCE. I worked as a teaching assistant for a legal writing course taught by Professor Jensie Anderson in my final year of law school. In this role, I provided mentorship to a small group of students, teaching them important skills for success in the legal profession such as how to Bluebook, research, structure their writing, and approach oral argument advocacy. Before law school, I taught undergraduate/graduate level courses in positive psychology and tutored students in various subjects, including ACT/SAT/GRE prep.
ATHLETICS. Before law school, I competed as a Division I NCAA track and field athlete at Stanford University and the University of Utah. I still hold the University of Utah collegiate javelin record (177’0″). During law school, I continued to pursue athletics, including javelin competitions and running events. In 2021, I ran two half marathons and one full marathon in honor of my late cousin, Keegan Beattie. In 2023, I returned to javelin throwing. I placed second place at the Aztec Invite in San Diego and first place at the Bengal Invite in Pocatello.
VOLUNTEERING. In my free time, I coach a local track & field sports club I founded several years ago for University of Utah students, the Utah Track & Field Sports Club. The club allows women, nonbinary individuals, and men to train and compete in track and field events when they might not otherwise have the opportunity to do so. It is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit, EIN # 92-1673236.
