Welcome To Our 2016 Dunwody Distinguished Lecturer
Professor Herbert Hovenkamp, Antitrust Scholar
“Antitrust and Information Technologies”
Please join the Florida Law Review in welcoming Professor Hovenkamp as the Dunwody Distinguished Lecturer in Law.
The Florida Law Review’s 35th annual Dunwody Distinguished Lecture in Law will feature Professor Herbert Hovenkamp, the preeminent scholar on antitrust law. Hovenkamp currently holds the Ben and Dorothy Willie Chair at the University of Iowa College of Law.
This year’s Dunwody Lecture, “Antitrust and Information Technologies,” will take place at the University of Florida Levin College of Law on Friday, April 8 at 10:30 a.m. in the Martin Levin Advocacy Center, Room 100. The event is free and open to the public.
The New York Times reported that many consider Hovenkamp to be “the dean of American antitrust law.” In 2008, the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division presented Hovenkamp the John Sherman Award for his lifetime contributions to the teaching and enforcement of antitrust law and the development of antitrust policy. Hovenkamp has published approximately 100 articles, 50 essays and book reviews, and a dozen books. He is the senior surviving author of Antitrust Law, currently 22 volumes. Hovenkamp’s books and law review articles are frequently cited by the United States Supreme Court and in Supreme Court briefs.
The Florida Law Review’s Dunwody Distinguished Lecture in Law series was established by the U.S. Sugar Corporation and the law firms of Dunwody, White & Landon, P.A. and Mershon, Sawyer, Johnston, Dunwody & Cole in honor of Elliot and Atwood Dunwody. The honorees were brothers who dedicated their lives to the legal profession and who set a standard of excellence for The Florida Bar. As graduates of the University of Florida College of Law, they labored long, continuously, and quietly to better the social and economic conditions in Florida.
The Dunwody Lecture series is intended to perpetuate the example set by the Dunwody brothers by providing a forum for renowned legal scholars to present novel and challenging ideas.
An archived video of the Dunwody Lecture will be available at www.floridalawreview.com following the event.
