Update from Patrick Jamieson

Patrick Jamieson won the 2011 Matthew A. Carter Citizen-Scholar Award.

Patrick Jamieson, B.A. 2011, is pursuing a J.D. at Duke Law School and a M.A. in History from the graduate school at Duke.  His senior thesis, “’The Delicacy of the Subject’: Creating a Proslavery Argument at Antebellum Emory,” received Highest Honors.  He writes, “I hope that the combination of traditional legal education and graduate study of history will allow me to further explore not only the influences of history on the law, but the ways such influences will be relevant in the changing law of tomorrow.  I hope to continue my focus on the nineteenth century U.S. South, perhaps looking to the connections between antebellum property law and the slave trade.”
