Diego Gil McCawley
Teaching Fellow, SPILS & Lecturer in Law


Diego is Lecturer in Law and Teaching Fellow for the Stanford Program in International Legal Studies (SPILS) at Stanford Law School, where he is also a Doctor of the Science of Law (JSD) candidate. Previously, he served as the Co-President of the Stanford Program in Law and Society, a student-run program aimed at promoting and advancing socio-legal interdisciplinary scholarship.

Diego’s academic interests include topics related to administrative law and governance, housing and urban policy, property, and law and society. In his doctoral dissertation, he is exploring the role of housing laws and policies in promoting social integration, using Chile’s social housing provision regime as a case study. 

Before coming to Stanford, he worked as a legal advisor for the “General Government Internal Audit Council,” of the Government of Chile, and as an Adjunct Lecturer at Universidad Alberto Hurtado School of Law. Diego also worked as a researcher of “Social Observatory,” a research center at Universidad Alberto Hurtado, and as an Area Director of “Techo,” a respected non-profit organization working with slum dwellers in Latin America. 

Diego holds a J.S.M. (Master of the Science of Law) from Stanford Law School, which he completed as a Fulbright Scholar, and an LL.B. summa cum laude from Universidad de Chile School of Law.
