Skylar Albertson is a Clinical Lecturer in Law and Curtis-Liman Clinical Fellow at Yale Law School. Albertson clerked for the Honorable Janet C. Hall of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. He also clerked for the Honorable Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. During 2018–2019, he held a Liman Fellowship and worked at the Bail Project, a national revolving bail fund. The Bail Project uses donated funds to post bail, offers voluntary support for appearing in court, and reuses funds returned to the Bail Project following the close of individuals’ court cases. Albertson helped coordinate the opening of bail fund sites in Indianapolis, Indiana; Maricopa County, Arizona; San Diego, California; Chicago, Illinois; and Compton, California. He also contributed to a policy framework the Bail Project developed to guide jurisdictions seeking to move away from the use of cash bail. Albertson is a 2013 graduate of Brown University and a 2018 graduate of Yale Law School.
