Meredith Alston Lucas, a third-year student at the University of Memphis’ Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, has been named to the National Symposium Editorial Board of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy.

This summer Lucas will work with the staff editing debates, panels, and speeches from the Federalist Society National Student Symposium, for publication in the winter issue of the Journal. The topic for the symposium, held at the University of Pennsylvania, was originalism (the belief that the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted based on the intent of the authors).

“I am honored to be included in such an amazing opportunity, and I look forward to working with some of the finest legal minds in the country,” Lucas said.

Of Lucas’ appointment, Law School Dean Kevin Smith said, “I am delighted that Meredith will have the opportunity to serve with other distinguished individuals as an editor for this important issue of the Journal.”

Married to William Lucas, her parents are Bobby and Sally Alston of Memphis. She graduated from Hutchison School in Memphis and from Berry College in Rome, Ga., where she received a B.A. degree in psychology with a minor in studio art.
