NYS OAG Antitrust Enforcement Externship
Bryan Bloom and Amy McFarlane, Lecturers-in-Law (2 graded academic and 3 ungraded fieldwork credits)
State attorneys general have increasingly taken on the mantle of antitrust enforcement. New York has been at the forefront of this effort, and the Attorney General’s Antitrust Bureau has used its broad enforcement powers on behalf of the People of the State of New York in a wide variety of areas, including challenging monopolization schemes, cartels, mergers, and other arrangements that threaten to raise prices for consumers. This course affords students the opportunity to learn and experience antitrust enforcement from the perspective of state government, and to develop skills in legal research, writing, investigative techniques, and litigation. The externship is comprised of a seminar and fieldwork in the Antitrust Bureau of the New York State Attorney General’s Office.
