Originally from the bountiful borough of Brooklyn, Neil is a second-year law student at Yale. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College, where he wrote his senior thesis on the interplay between local, national, and international actors in Jordan's Syrian refugee response. Before law school, Neil earned an MPhil in International Relations from the University of Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar and wrote his Master’s thesis on the role of precedent in the decisions of the International Court of Justice. This summer, he is working at the United Nations International Law Commission in Geneva. At Yale, Neil serves on the board of First Generation Professionals and the International Refugee Assistance Project.
In college, Neil was an economics and calculus tutor, peer counselor, Co-Captain of Harvard's national championship-winning mock trial team, and co-president of Harvard Model Congress, the country's largest annual simulation of the US government for high school students. At Cambridge Coaching, Neil specializes in supporting students through the law school admissions process, the LSAT, and legal studies.
In his spare time, Neil blind-tastes and identifies wine competitively. He was the Top Taster at the 65th Annual Blind Wine Tasting Varsity Match in London in 2018, and has appeared on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel for a segment on wine tasting.
