On January 20, the second Next Generation of Antitrust Scholarship Conference was held at NYU School of Law, giving antitrust and competition law professors who became full-time professors in 2002 or later a chance to present their latest research.

Among the senior antitrust scholars and practitioners serving as commentators were Harry First, Charles L. Denison Professor of Law and conference co-organizer; Eleanor Fox ’61, Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation; Judge Douglas Ginsburg of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, who recently joined the NYU Law faculty; and Professor E. Thomas Sullivan of the University of Minnesota Law School, currently visiting NYU Law as a faculty in residence. Damien Gerard (LL.M. ’03), a research fellow at the University of Louvain Faculty of Law, presented his paper “Antitrust and the Public/Private Divide: Which Discipline for State Action?”

Topics at the daylong conference included antitrust and courts, the structure of antitrust, antitrust and intellectual property, and antitrust and regulation. The event was co-sponsored by NYU School of Law, the Association of American Law Schools’ Section on Antitrust and Economic Regulation, and the American Bar Association’s Section of Antitrust Law.
