In 1970, Mr. Langer earned a Bachelor of Arts from Franklin and Marshall College. He subsequently attended the University of Connecticut School of Law, graduating with a Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1973, after which he secured admission to practice law through the U.S. District Court of Connecticut, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Mr. Langer retains his professional affiliation with the American Bar Association's Section of Antitrust Law and the Connecticut Bar Association, having served in key leadership capacities with both organizations.
