Justice Teaching

04FFF70D-0118C716clip_image002Justice Teaching is designed to bring the constitutional doctrines of our government into vivid focus for the next generations. It calls on judges and lawyers to serve as resources for the teachers and students in each and every elementary, middle and high school in Florida. Mill Creek is proud to have Megan Wall, J.D, back by popular demand to teach our upper elementary students.

Megan Wall graduated from the University of Florida (BA English 1984, MA English 1987, JD 1991). While in law school she interned at non-profit public interest legal organizations, and started an organization at her law school called the Association for Public Interest Law (APIL), which funds students to do internships at public interest firms. Since graduation she has worked as a Legal Aid attorney with various programs in Florida (Legal Services of Greater Miami; Central Florida Legal Services in Palatka; etc.). She began practicing with Jacksonville Area Legal Aid (JALA) in Jacksonville in February 2002, and in January 2005 became the Managing Attorney of an outreach office called St. Johns County Legal Aid (a branch of JALA). In addition to her legal work, she served on the 7th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission (1994-1998), the Executive Council of the Public Interest Law Section of the Florida Bar (1994-1998, 1998-2002), as President of the Putnam Co. Bar Assoc. (1999), President of the Flagler Co. Bar Assoc. (2000), and as Vice-Chair and Chair of the Ethics Committee for the 7th Judicial Circuit (2001-2004), the Indigency Committee for the Seventh Circuit (2006-2008), and other committees.
