My thesis is about political and constitutional developments in England in the 1690s after the Glorious Revolution.  I focus on the journey of some of Parliament's progressive legislation and the events that catalyzed them while analyzing relevant court cases.

I was interested in the topic because after the Glorious Revolution England's constitutional dynamic was greatly debated and disagreed upon during the time and by historians to this day.  The complex political scene that coincided with this made it fascinating to analyze historically.  Furthermore, the court cases that I analyzed piqued my interest in law.

After graduation I am attending law school.  I am currently deciding between UCLA, Vanderbilt, and Boston University.
