Jackson Gandour
Summer Legal Intern
Biography

Jackson Gandour, a rising 2L at NYU School of Law, was born and raised in Gulfport, Mississippi. He majored in philosophy and telecommunications at Indiana University and graduated with highest distinction in 2016. While an undergraduate, Jackson won IU’s highest award for scholarship in the humanities and studied abroad in Copenhagen. His coursework in Denmark sparked an interest in international law and inspired him to pursue a legal career. To this end, he has worked at the Innocence Project New Orleans and spent much of his year prior to law school at the University of Chicago’s Exoneration Project. While at NYU School of Law, Jackson has volunteered as case manager for the Washington Square Legal Services Bail Fund and participated in the Urban Justice Center’s Solitary Confinement Project. During his 2L and 3L years, he plans to study international labor, human rights, and humanitarian law as well as their interactions with present economic structures. Not wanting to leave philosophy and film behind, he also plans to explore the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of international law and maybe even work on a documentary or two.
