While the economy is seemingly booming, it is also undergoing wrenching transitions. Two areas of law most deeply affected by these transitions include labor law and antitrust law. We have seen efforts by the United States Supreme Court to radically restrict workers’ rights to organize and bargain collectively while simultaneously witnessing a rising tide of labor unrest. Similarly, we are watching vast and unprecedented concentrations of wealth, and the rise of a new generation of antitrust lawyers willing to challenge the dominant paradigm and support a return to antitrust law as an instrument of social justice. This program means to examine those developments in the law by bringing together some of the most exciting legal minds in both disciplines.
