Golieb Fellowships to Basile, Hall

The New York University School of Law has just released the names of next year's Samuel I. Golieb Fellows in Legal History. They are Marco Basile and Aaron Hall.

Marco Basile holds a J.D. and Ph.D. in History from Harvard University, as well as an M. Phil. in Political Thought and Intellectual History from the University of Cambridge. Prior to starting the Golieb fellowship, he will have completed two judicial clerkships, for the Hon. David J. Barron on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and for the Hon. Paul J. Watford on the Ninth Circuit. Following his year as a Golieb fellow, he is scheduled to clerk for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court. His research focuses on the slave trade and U.S. international legal thought. Published work has appeared in the Harvard Law Review, among other venues.

Aaron Hall is currently a fellow at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies and a Ph.D. candidate in History at the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to starting the Ph.D., he received a J.D. from Harvard Law School, clerked for the Hon. Lawrence E. Kahn in the Northern District of New York, and worked as an associate at Ropes & Gray.  His dissertation is titled “Claiming the Founding: Slavery and Constitutional History in Antebellum America.” Published and forthcoming work appears in the Journal of American History, the Journal of Southern History, Law & Social Inquiry, and the Law & History Review
