An Indian-American professor from Yale University has been named as a member of the prestigious National Council on Humanities by US President Barack Obama.

President Obama nominated Akhil Amar, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at the university since 2008, along with other key administration positions yesterday evening.

“I am confident that these outstanding individuals will serve the American people well, and I look forward to working with them,” the President said in a statement.

Amar has been a professor at both Yale Law School and Yale College since 1985, and he has held various professorships, including Southmayd Professor from 1993 to 2008, Professor from 1990 to 1993, Associate Professor from 1988 to 1990, and Assistant Professor from 1985 to 1988.

Apart from being a member of the Board of Directors of the Constitutional Accountability Center and the Coalition of Freedom Advisory Board of the National Constitution Center, Amar is also the co-editor of a constitutional law casebook, ‘Processes of Constitutional Decision-making,’ and has written several other books on constitutional law.

He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2007 and was named a Senior Scholar by the National Constitution Center in 2000.

Amar also worked as a law clerk to Stephen Breyer, who was a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, from 1984 to 1985.
