“The Kautz-Uible Fellowship Program empowered me to think broadly about the application of economics outside of the classroom. As a result, I developed a lasting passion for the economic principles that were the focus of my undergraduate studies, and I apply those principles daily in my practice as an antitrust lawyer.”
