Supreme Court Assistance Project Fellow
David Muraskin is the 2011–2012 Alan Morrison Supreme Court Assistance Project Fellow at Public Citizen Litigation Group. Mr. Muraskin’s responsibilities include monitoring the U.S. Supreme Court’s docket to identify and analyze cases of interest to Public Citizen, and coordinating the Litigation Group’s pro bono assistance to litigants in Supreme Court cases — from the certiorari stage, to briefing on the merits, to preparation for oral argument.

He received his law degree in 2009 from Stanford Law School, graduating with distinction. There he worked as a student attorney in the Stanford Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, assisting with four merits cases and two briefs in opposition to certiorari.
Mr. Muraskin holds a master’s degree in Forced Migration from the Oxford University where he was a member of St. Antony’s College. He received his undergraduate degree with highest honors from the University of Chicago and was elected a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
