Open Markets Welcomes Louis Brandeis Law and Political Economy Fellows

Washington, D.C. — The Open Markets Institute welcomes its inaugural fellows for its Louis Brandeis Law and Political Economy Fellowship. The fellowship aims to attract the best and the brightest young minds to advance the wider anti-monopoly movement through antitrust law and policy initiatives. 

“We are pleased to launch this fellowship program and look forward to important contributions by our fellows,” said Open Markets Legal Director Sandeep Vaheesan. “This program is a key initiative to invite a younger generation of legal minds to develop their skills to challenge the concentration of private power across the country.” 

This is a fellowship for first-year law school students interested in using antitrust law, banking law and financial regulation, telecommunications regulation, corporate governance law, intellectual property law, and other legal tools to address America’s concentration crisis

Open Markets Institute warmly welcomes its first fellows this 2019:

Bhargav Setlur joins Open Markets from Columbia Law School. He will be researching the Packers and Stockyards Act, among other antitrust law-related projects.

Matt Summers joins Open Markets from Harvard Law School, where he is the co-founder of the Antitrust Association. He will be researching aftermarket monopolization, among other antitrust law-related projects.

In addition, the Open Markets Institute is organizing an Antitrust Law Student Network to connect students with each other, our experts, and others in the field. This network is open to all current law students as well as to recent law student graduates. Please email Katherine Dill at [email protected] to be included on the list or for more information about applying for a fellowship.

Open Markets’ Fellowship Program and Antitrust Law Student Network aim to engage the growing interest among law students in antitrust law, as well as in America’s longstanding tradition of using legal tools to shape and promote a democratic, open, and vibrant political economy.
