George to Wake Forest Law

Appointments season is upon us, and we are always delighted to share legal history updates. The latest comes from Wake Forest University School of Law, announcing their hiring of Marie-Amélie George:
Marie-Amélie George will join Wake Forest School of Law in July 2018 as an assistant professor of law. 
After earning her JD from Columbia Law School in 2007, George worked as a prosecutor at the Miami State Attorney’s Office and later as a litigation associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison in New York. She returned to academia for law fellowships at Columbia and Harvard universities as she pursued her Ph.D. in history at Yale University. 
Her dissertation on the transformation of gay and lesbian rights in the United States continues the work she did earning a master’s degree from the University of Oxford. At Oxford, her thesis, for which she received distinction, traced the origins of sex reassignment surgeries to Germany’s gay rights movement of the 20th century and its efforts to decriminalize consensual sodomy. George earned her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University, graduating magna cum laude with a major in comparative studies of the Middle East and Europe.
