Hannah McCarthy

I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, where I studied Law and Business at Trinity College before qualifying as an attorney in New York.


Biography:

My interest in the connection between law and public policy grew after working in the legal department of Twitter’s European Headquarters and as a caseworker for the Innocence project, which reviews possible miscarriages of justice. I gained campaign and political experience interning on the Democratic Party’s campaign for the 2014 US Midterm Elections and for Senator Charles Schumer in the United States Senate, where I focused on researching trade and foreign policy issues. I am an alumni of the US State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Programme, which focused on youth engagement and social entrepreneurship, and the Washington Ireland Program, which supports peace and reconciliation efforts in Northern Ireland and Ireland.
