Christopher T. Napier, a second-year law student at Rutgers School of Law, is the recipient of the 2013 Antitrust Section Law Student Fellowship, The New York Bar Foundation has announced.

As the recipient of the $6,000 fellowship, Napier will work this summer in the Antitrust Bureau of the New York State Attorney General's Office in New York City.

"The Antitrust Section is very pleased to sponsor the Antitrust Summer Fellowship, which helps a law student gain valuable experience in antitrust law while providing additional resources to an enforcement agency. We are proud to continue The New York Bar Foundation's tradition of giving back to our community," said Eric J. Stock of Manhattan (Hogan Lovells), chair of the State Bar Association's Antitrust Section.  "We are especially thrilled that Christopher Napier will serve as our inaugural summer fellow. He has demonstrated a strong interest in antitrust law and practicing law in New York."

Napier graduated from Rutgers University School of Business with honors and also was recognized by Mu Kappa Tau Marketing Honor Society and Athenaeum Honor Society. He expects to graduate from Rutgers Law School in May 2015. He resides in Maple Shade, NJ.

"I am honored to receive this fellowship and I know it will be an invaluable experience.  I hope to contribute in a meaningful way to both the state of New York and the practice of antitrust law through this fellowship and beyond," said Napier.
