About Chris Sagers

Chris Sagers joined the faculty in the fall of 2002. He has taught courses in Antitrust, Business Organizations, Law & Economics, Administrative Law, and a seminar concerning the theory of the firm. His scholarship focuses on antitrust and business regulation, and in particular on how the relationship of business and government operates as a part of our overall political philosophy. This includes especially the relationship of antitrust and other law to the assertedly political or expressive conduct of businesses and trade groups and the role that business plays in the American way of government. He also writes about economic regulation, legal philosophy and history. He has given testimony on these matters before the U.S. Congress and the Antitrust Modernization Commission and is a frequent panelist and lecturer. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute, an Advisory Board member of the American Antitrust Institute, a contributor to publications and policy efforts of the Antitrust Section of the American Bar Association, and a member of the Law & Society Association.
Before joining the faculty, Professor Sagers practiced law for four years in Washington, D.C., first at Arnold & Porter and then at Shea & Gardner. At both firms he was involved in large-scale litigation and public policy matters touching on any number of substantive areas, but with a concentration on commercial affairs. He earned his law and public policy degrees at the University of Michigan and was an editor of the Michigan Law Review.
Hailing originally from the peaceful obscurity of small-town Iowa, Professor Sagers lives with his wife and son in the nicest little town in America, Cleveland Heights, Ohio.


Present Professor, Cleveland State University
