Megha Bhatt

2014 Public Interest Grant Recipient

Megha Bhatt is a third year law student at UC Davis School of Law. She earned her undergraduate degrees in Religious Studies and Political Science: Public Service from UC Davis.


In her undergraduate studies, Megha founded the school’s first Human Rights Journal, Making the Case. She also volunteered at the Women’s Resources and Research Center and interned in the Office of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. At UC Davis School of Law, Megha furthered her interest in human rights by re-starting the International Law Society and serving on the Board for the King Hall Legal Foundation.


This summer, Megha worked with Levitt and Quinn, a non-profit family law center, providing essential family law services in the LA region. Specifically, Megha worked with the Veterans Legal Corps to provide child support, child custody, divorce, driver’s license reinstatement and relocation support to those who have served our country. She assisted veterans in legal proceedings, conducted “know your rights”  training across the LA region and created pamphlets to distribute local veterans organizations. She hopes that her advocacy will help empower veterans to understand and exercise their rights.
