Nicholas R. Parrillo
Nicholas R. Parrillo joined the Yale Law School faculty in 2008-09 as an Associate Professor. His interests are in administrative law, government contracting and privatization, and American legal history. He has published an article on the U.S. government's use of privateers during the 19th century and another on its relationship to its contractors during World War II. Presently he is working on a book about the history of how American public officers were paid, particularly how the form of their compensation shifted from fees-for-service and commissions toward fixed salaries in the 19th century. Parrillo holds a J.D. from Yale and an A.B. from Harvard, was a recipient of the NYU Golieb Fellowship in Legal History and the Whiting Fellowship in the Humanities, and served as a clerk to Judge Stephen F. Williams of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
