Congratulations to Dave Sidhu (New Mexico) who this academic year will be a Supreme Court Fellow.
Dave teaches and writes in the areas of constitutional law, national security, civil rights, and as you can see in the post below, employment discrimination. His scholarly interests concern the rights and experiences of marginalized communities, including the urban poor, post-9/11 detainees, and Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim in the United States after 9/11.
Before joining UNM in 2011, Dave taught at the University of Baltimore School of Law, held research/fellowship posts at Harvard, Georgetown, and Stanford universities, worked as a staff attorney in the policy arm of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, and clerked for U.S. District Judge David. G. Campbell. Dave has drafted, on a pro bono basis, amicus briefs for scholars and community-based organizations in several cases: Ashcroft v. Iqbal (S. Ct.), al-Maqaleh v. Obama (D.C. Cir.), Padilla v. Yoo (9th Cir.), United States v. Hatch (10th Cir.), and Knight v. Thompson (11th Cir.).
Congrats, and enjoy your fellowship!
