Professor Sagers Joins Yale Law School Antitrust Center as Fellow

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, joined a new think tank based in the Yale Law School called the Thurman Arnold Project, which will generate scholarship and advocacy for vigorous competition policy. Founded by Yale economist and Justice Department veteran Fiona Scott Morton with a grant from the Knight  Foundation, the center is named for Thurman Arnold, a celebrated and influential antitrust enforcer who led the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division during the administration of Franklin Roosevelt. Arnold is largely credited with founding modern antitrust law in the 1930s, and inaugurating the period of vigorous enforcement that spanned the post-War and Cold War eras.
