Before arriving at Georgetown Law, Agustín was a Visiting Researcher at Harvard Law School and before that, he was the School Director of the University of Chile Law School, an Assistant Professor of micro and macroeconomics in the Economic Law Department, and a member of the Center for Regulation and Competition at the same school. His areas of expertise are consumer law, public procurement and law, and economics. At Georgetown Law, under the advice of Dean Nan Hunter, he is developing an empirical project to try to unveil the reasons why civil law countries adopt or reject the so-called American model of class actions for consumer protection and to test if the preexisting bureaucracies, whose regulatory powers could be challenged through the class action device, had any influence in said choice.
