Students aren’t the only ones back from holiday break. Joining us for our Back to School podcast special is our host Savannah’s own law professor, Spencer Waller. In the episode, Professor Waller describes his winding trajectory with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (as a staff law clerk), to the U.S. Department of Justice (first as a trial attorney in the Foreign Commerce Section of the Antitrust Division and later as a special attorney in the Chicago Strike Force of the Criminal Division), to Freeborn and Peters in private practice. Years into his career, he caught the ‘teaching bug’ and decided to embark on the lengthy process of becoming a law professor. For those interested in teaching law, Professor Waller breaks down his process of getting there. He taught at Brooklyn Law School for 10 years before finally transitioning to Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he’s been at since 2000. Professor Waller also serves as the Faculty Director of the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies.  His passion for teaching and researching antitrust law really shines through.
