Professor Kalir Presents at Tikkun Leil Sha’vu’out

On Jan. 8, Clinical Professor of Law Doron Kalir presented at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun’s Tikkun Leil Sha’vu’out. The event, which is community-wide, attracts hundreds for a night of text and Torah Study with Rabbis, theologians, academics, and other thought leaders. Professor Kalir’s presentation this year was titled, “Following Netflix’s Come Sunday: What is Judaism All About?” The presentation explored the rise and fall of Bishop Carlton Pearson as reflected by the bioepic “Come Sunday,” only to return to Judaism and ask what lessons, if any, are relevant from this story to ours. This was Professor Kalir’s fourth annual presentation at this event.

Sagers Quoted in Flurry of Media on New Antitrust Probes and FTC v. Qualcomm

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, spoke with several media outlets this week about news that federal regulators may be investigating Big Tech firms for monopolization, including Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple. He appeared live on Bloomberg Radio, and was quoted in stories in Agence-France Presse, the TelegraphFox Business, Bloomberg Law, and Reuters.

He also spoke with Reuters in a story last week about the Federal Trade Commission’s win against mobile chipmaker Qualcomm. The FTC persuaded a federal district court that Qualcomm had used its dominance in  modem chips to exclude rival manufacturers and squeeze excess profits from mobile device makers. The case has been controversial, and it drew the unprecedented op-ed by a sitting Federal Trade Commissioner–a Republican appointed by President Trump after the agency had first brought the case–publicly calling for her own agency to lose on appeal.
