Julia A. Robitaille

I come to the Law & Ethics fellowship from a strong and wide-ranging educational background. I am studying both Government and English with a creative writing focus and have excelled in my areas of study. I was awarded a research grant this summer to study the historical rhetoric of race difference in America with Professor Chaney and was awarded the Sidney Cox Memorial Prize for creative writing in 2021 for a body of work I wrote during the pandemic. As a third-year government major, I am interested in reading the cases in this fellowship through a Constitutional and policy-driven lens. However, I am also very interested in the philosophy and ethics aspects of these arguments. I recently took my Government Senior Seminar in political philosophy, a class which involved studying the methodologies of a prominent political philosophers and applying these methodologies to contemporary issues in justice.
