Antitrust law scholarship remains an important component to the practice of antitrust law and the creation of effective antitrust policy by the antitrust agencies. Scholarship in this area both shapes and is shaped by the latest economic thinking and developments in the law. Moreover, the quality and sophistication of practitioners, both lawyers and economists, upon the academic antitrust discourse is perhaps unmatched in any other substantive field of law. To take advantage of the potential synergies of practitioners and academics, the ABA Section of Antitrust Law proudly presents the second "Next Generation of Antitrust Scholarship Conference.” The purpose of this day-long conference is to provide an opportunity for antitrust/competition law professors who began their full time professorial career in or after 2002 to present their latest research. Senior antitrust scholars and practitioners in the field will comment on their papers. Attendance for this conference is open to the larger antitrust community.
