Jesse Scott
Summer Legal Intern

Jesse Scott is a first-year JD candidate at NYU School of Law.  He is focusing on international law and is particularly interested in the legal and political structures of the Islamic and post-Soviet worlds.  This summer, he will be working with Seyed Masoud Noori on a project studying the position of the Sharia in the constitutions of Muslim-majority countries.  Jesse and Masoud will also be creating a handbook that promotes interactive methods of legal education among countries that currently only use the traditional lecture format.

Jesse graduated from Williams College in 2019, where he majored in political science and history.  While at Williams, Jesse completed intensive independent research in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, interned for the Rondeli Foundation for Strategic and International Studies in Tbilisi, Georgia, and spent a semester at the Stockholm School of Economics.  One of his most memorable experiences was a summer studying wildlife management and conservation in Tanzania, where he worked to find a delicate balance between economic, human rights, and environmental factors.  Jesse recently completed summer internships at the Cato Institute and the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC.
