DETROIT – Wayne State University Law School Assistant Professor Sanjukta Paul has been appointed to the Open Markets Institute’s new Academic Advisory Board, designed to guide and advise the organization’s research and policy work.

Paul, who studies antitrust and labor regulation, joins six other law professors and researchers well-known for their work in antitrust, communications law, labor and employment law, and intellectual property law; three prominent economists from Spain, the United States and the United Kingdom; and two leading public advocates.

Last fall, Paul was named a fellow of the Thurman Arnold Project at Yale University, an interdisciplinary project to bring together research on antitrust law. She also testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law on the subject of Antitrust and Economic Opportunity: Competition in Labor Markets.

She is writing a book tentatively entitled “Solidarity in the Shadow of Antitrust: Labor & the Legal Idea of Competition,” which will be published by Cambridge University Press. Her academic work has appeared or is forthcoming in, among others, the UCLA Law Review; Law & Contemporary Problems; the Berkeley Journal of Employment & Labor Law; and The Cambridge Handbook of U.S. Labor Law for the Twenty-First Century.

According to its website, Open Markets Institute uses research and journalism to expose the dangers of monopolization, identifies changes in policy and law to address them, and educates policymakers, academics, movement groups, and other influential stakeholders to establish open, competitive markets that support a strong, just, and inclusive democracy.
