Maryam Jamshidi NYU School of Law

Maryam Jamshidi

Maryam Jamshidi is an Acting Assistant Professor of Lawyering at NYU School of Law. She is a lawyer and writer with over ten years of experience working on issues relating to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Her scholarship uses private national security litigation to explore contemporary developments in private and procedural law, and to shed new light on understandings of traditional liberal democratic and constitutional values. In line with this focus, Jamshidi’s current research analyzes the increasing privatization of U.S. national security and demonstrates how it undermines and underscores an important, but less-appreciated public interest: popular sovereignty. Her last article, How the War on Terror Is Transforming Private U.S. Law, was published in the Washington University Law Review. Prior to joining NYU Law, she represented clients in civil litigation matters relating to foreign relations and national security law issues, including foreign sovereign immunity and alleged material support of terrorism. She also served as judicial law clerk to the Honorable Judge Gladys Kessler of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Jamshidi is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, received an M.Sc. in Political Theory from the London School of Economics, and an A.B. in Political Science from Brown University
