 |  July 7, 2020

According to a tweet published on Tuesday, July 7, Lina Khan will start on September 8th as Associate Professor of Law at Columbia University. She will be teaching a seminar on competition policy.

Khan researches and writes on antitrust law and competition policy. According to the Columbia website she is particularly interested in how new technologies and business models are challenging current doctrinal assumptions, and in how modifying the institutional structure of antitrust enforcement could enable substantive rules to keep pace with evolving market realities.

Her piece “Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox” was awarded the 2018 Antitrust Writing Award for “Best Academic Unilateral Conduct Article,” the Yale Law School’s Israel H. Peres Prize, and the Yale Law Journal’s Michael Egger Prize. 

Her work was described by the New York Times as having “reframed decades of monopoly law,” and Politico has called her “a leader of a new school of antitrust thought.” Her scholarship has also been discussed in the Atlantic, Bloomberg, the Economist, Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post, and she was recently named to the Politico 50, a list of thinkers whose ideas are driving politics.

Ms. Khan was Legal Director at OMI as well as a Legal Fellow at the Office of FTC Commissioner Rohit Chopra. She is presently Counsel at the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust as well as an Academic Fellow at Columbia Law School.
