Senior Individualized Project: Internship with the Honorable Gerald E. Rosen
MetadataShow full item record
The internship opportunity I chose to take during the summer of 2005 was to work in the office of the Honorable Gerald E. Rosen. Judge Rosen is a former Kalamazoo College graduate who attended law school at George Washington University and now sits on the 6th United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. He has sat for many important decisions including some of the first post-9/11 terrorist cases in the United States. In examining economics, both in theory and in practice, I found that law and government can play large roles in many facets. Because the cases I was working with during the internship were mainly cases of criminal activity or infringement of trademark, copyright, and patent laws, I will try to focus on the economic importance of trademark laws. In addition, I will also tum attention to government's role in antitrust law, such as in the renowned case with Microsoft.
