Everest Fang graduated this May from Yale University with a BA in Economics and Mathematics. He was admitted to Harvard Law School through its Junior Deferral Program, and plans to begin his studies in the fall of 2022. In August, Everest will begin working at Deloitte's Government/Public Services Consulting Office in Washington, DC.
As a JURIST Digital Scholar, Everest will study the recent evolution of antitrust issues in the US, and their consequences in the COVID age. He seeks to describe the consequences of consolidation in various industries, particularly in the context of today's crisis. He also intends to understand how public attention to antitrust issues has developed in recent years by analyzing data on JURIST readership. Everest hopes to spark more interest in competition law by articulating how it has shaped the society we live in today, and how individuals can make an impact in this arena.
On campus at Yale, Everest worked with a student publication called the Yale Herald and a volunteer group called the Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project. He has also worked as a research assistant for the Yale Department of Political Science and the Yale Program on Financial Stability. He is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah.
