May 10: Research Assistant for Prof. William Nelson

Posted on

Professor William Nelson is looking for a summer research assistant regarding a series of cases in 1765-66 holding the Stamp Act unconstitutional, null, and void.  These cases were known by attendees at the 1787 constitutional convention and the 1788 ratification conventions and by President Jefferson, members of Congress, and the justices who decided Marbury v. Madison in 1803.  . The core question is what effect should those cases have on our interpretation of what Marbury v. Madison decided and therefore on the nature of judicial review.

Work can be done remotely. A background in American history is preferred, but not required.

Employment would be June, July, and Aug 2022, ideally part-time, but full-time can be considered.

Submit resume, unofficial law school transcript, and cover letter indicating reasons for interest in position no later than 5 PM on May 10th to
