While at LAPA
Gil Seinfeld, Law Clerk to the Honorable Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. His primary areas of interest are federal courts and civil procedure. He received an A.B. in Government from Harvard College and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. He has published a case comment exploring the intersection of the Free Speech and Establishment Clauses of the First Amendment and is completing a piece on constructive waiver of the Eleventh Amendment immunity. At Princeton he will be working on two projects: one examines state legislative reactions to the U.S. Supreme Court's reinvigorated federalism jurisprudence, the other assesses different versions of the canon of constitutional avoidance.
