Cardozo Law Review is pleased to welcome Professor Zephyr Teachout to discuss her upcoming book, Break 'em Up.
This lecture will explore the argument for a national anti-monopoly movement, and will include a discussion of how such a movement would affect the future of law.
Zephyr Teachout is an Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University. Her academic areas of interest include corruption law, antitrust law, election law, and constitutional law.
Her book on the political and legal history of corruption in the United States, Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United, is widely recognized as a groundbreaking analysis on the subject. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens cited her anti-corruption research in his dissent in Citizens United.
Professor Teachout has been an outspoken critic of the legal issues surrounding the Trump administration. She is among a group of lawyers who filed a federal lawsuit against Donald Trump shortly after he took office, arguing that Trump's financial involvement with foreign state-controlled companies is a violation of the Emoluments Clause.
