Jacob Nesling

Laidlaw Scholar and LLB student, University of Leeds

I am a 2022 Laidlaw Scholar from the University of Leeds.  My research is all about commerical and insolvency law, testing the assumption that "the insolvency of the principal terminates the agency relationship whilst the insolvency of the agent terminates the relationship only if it makes him unfit to perform his duties".  Basically, how does an agent (e.g. the UK seller of Australian wine) running out of or being low on money effect contractual relationships.  

Technical bits aside, in my spare time I love to be active - particularly endurance sports.  I am also an avid follower of UK and US politics, with an emphasis on constitutional affairs.  

One day, I hope to be a barrister.

Eleanor Campbell

Student, Columbia University

Hello! My name is Eleanor Campbell, and I am a 2021 Laidlaw Scholar. I am a student at Columbia University in the City of New York, and I am originally from Raleigh, NC, USA. I major in Economics and am particularly interested in Behavioral Economics.

During my first year with Laidlaw, I worked with Professor Hitendra Wadhwa of the Columbia Business School in developing a leadership fellowship for aspiring young changemakers.

For my Leadership in Action project, I am working with World Vision on WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Health) projects in West Gonja, Ghana.

Nathaniel Beckett

Student, University of Leeds

Ancient History and Philosophy Undergraduate at the University of Leeds. My research project is on the impact that the UK's membership of the EU has had on British foreign policy and diplomacy. As someone who will most likely pursue a Masters and a career in international relations and security, I am interested in understanding the international relationship that has most affected British diplomacy to a depth that could inform future foreign policy decisions. Please do get in touch if you have research interests similar to my own, specifically in the areas of IR and security because it would be great to exchange ideas! -- When I'm not working I like to head down to one of my favourite live music venues, usually a jazz bar, to blow off some steam with friends. I also like to watch Sunday rugby and am passionate about all kinds of music. Add me on Linkedin!
