Angharad Vaughan

Angharad received her J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law in 2007. Prior to joining The Bronx Defenders, Angharad worked for six years as a litigation associate at Glenn A. Garber, P.C., a Manhattan firm specializing in criminal defense and civil rights litigation related to the criminal justice system, including wrongful conviction, false arrest, and other claims arising  from police or prosecutorial misconduct.  Angharad also worked closely with the firm’s wrongful conviction project, which grew into the Exoneration Initiative, a non-profit organization that provides free legal representation to wrongfully convicted individuals whose cases lack dispositive DNA evidence that could prove their innocence.  During law school, Angharad interned with the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, Roxbury Defenders, and the Honorable James C. Francis IV of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Through the law school’s Prisoners’ Rights Clinic, Angharad represented a terminally ill inmate serving a life sentence at a hearing before the Massachusetts Parole Board. Angharad earned her B.A. in 2001 from Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied literature, history, and sociology.
