Judicial Elections as Popular Constitutionalism
David Pozen graduated summa cum laude from Yale University in Economics and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He was the founding officer and president of the Yale Entrepreneurial Society, and a member of the Yale varsity soccer team. After earning a master’s degree in Comparative Social Policy at Oxford University, he returned to Yale for law school, earning his Juris Doctor and serving on the Yale Law Journal.
Upon his graduation from law school, David was appointed Special Assistant to Senator Edward (“Ted”) Kennedy on the Judiciary Committee and also served as a post-doctoral associate as the Yale Law School Heyman Fellow. Following that position, David spent a year as a law clerk to Judge Merrick B. Garland in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit before clerking for Justice John Paul Stevens at the U.S. Supreme Court during the 2009-2010 term. David is now Special Assistant to the U.S. Department of State’s legal adviser (and former Dean of Yale Law School) Harold Koh.
