Established in 1976 by the Victor H. Kramer Foundation, and available for professional employees of the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, the Victor H. Kramer Foundation Fellowship is designed to increase the opportunities available to employees of these two government agencies. The Kramer Fellowship provides mid-career training and intellectual enrichment for professional employees already established in their careers. As a result of the Fellow’s experience as a public official handling important policy and administrative matters, the Fellow will likewise enrich the intellectual community of the law school.

The Fellowship provides mid-level officials in the two agencies with a time for reflection and continued education and to immerse the Fellow in emerging research and methodologies in the antitrust, consumer protection, and related areas of law. The Fellowship provides an opportunity for the Fellow to combine her/his practical professional experiences with further research and study. Additionally, the Fellow has the opportunity to engage with professors and students who share their interests.

The specific content and structure of the program is developed by the Fellow and the faculty program director. The program will combine reading, research, and/or coursework as they pertain to the Fellow’s professional and academic interests. The appointment of the Kramer fellow is coordinated by the agencies and the Office of Academic Affairs at Harvard Law School.

The program is offered in alternating years between Harvard Law School and The University of Chicago Law School. The 2014-2015 Kramer Fellow will be in residence at Harvard Law School from September 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. The Fellowship is expected to be available at the University of Chicago Law School for the 2015-2016 year.

The 2014-2015 Kramer Fellow is Daniel J. Gilman.
