Jeremy Marwell ’06 has become a clerk for new U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a former NYU School of Law adjunct professor, in the 2009-10 term. Marwell, who described himself as “thrilled,” said, “It is an honor and great privilege to serve as a law clerk for Justice Sotomayor, especially in her first year on the Court. I am sincerely grateful to Dean Revesz, the Furman program advisers, and other NYU faculty, whose support over the years has made this possible.”

Most recently an attorney-adviser in the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel, Marwell graduated from the Law School magna cum laude and as a member of Order of the Coif. A Furman Scholar, he served as senior articles editor of the NYU Law Review and won the Judge Rose L. & Herbert Rubin Law Review Prize for most outstanding note in international, commercial, or public law, as well as the George Foulk Memorial Award for outstanding sincerity and distinguished scholarship.

Marwell clerked for Judge Stephen F. Williams of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit after law school. Attending the University of Cambridge on a Paul Mellon Fellowship, Marwell earned an M.Phil. in historical studies with first class honors in 2001, and then worked as a research associate in science and technology studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. In 1999 he completed undergraduate studies at Yale University, majoring in chemistry and history and graduating summa cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
