Jeff Gordon is an Associate Research Scholar and the Fellow in Private Law at Yale Law School. Alongside Daniel Markovits, Gordon facilitates programming related to private law through the Center for Private Law. Gordon's research concerns the role of the state in coordinating economic development. He writes on tax law, contract law, federal budget law, law and macroeconomics, and law and industrial policy. 

After graduating from Yale Law School in 2021, Gordon worked as a Tax Law Fellow on the U.S. House Committee on Ways & Means. His time on the Committee coincided with the drafting of the Inflation Reduction Act, which has subsequently become a central object of his research and a window into the promise and limits of conducting industrial policy through a regime of subsidies. Previously, he worked at the IRS Office of Chief Counsel and New York Attorney General's Office. While at Yale Law School, Gordon was an editor of the Law and Political Economy Blog. Prior to law school, he was a doctoral candidate in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley.
