Thomas C. Grey Fellow
Albertina Antognini joined Stanford Law School as a fellow in 2011. Albertina received her J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School. During law school, she worked at Asociación por los Derechos Civiles in Buenos Aires, and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP in New York. After graduation, Albertina received a Frederick Sheldon Fellowship to research immigration law in Paris, where she was in residence at the École Normale Supérieure. She then worked at the Immigrants’ Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union in New York as a volunteer attorney. Most recently, Albertina clerked for the Honorable Rosemary S. Pooler of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
Albertina received her B.A. in Comparative Literature from Stanford University, where she graduated with distinction and was awarded a Robert M. Golden Medal for her thesis on Phenomenology and Italian literature. Prior to attending law school, she worked at the Cultural Foundation of the Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria in Madrid.
Albertina’s research and writing explores the ways in which different areas of the law interact. She has paid particular attention to the relationship between family law and immigration law, analyzing how the legal rules and doctrines of each field intersect in constructing overlapping yet incomplete definitions of the American family. Her primary teaching interests include Family Law, Immigration Law, Trusts and Estates, and Property.
