AUTHOR NEWS! Justice Department Honors Herbert Hovenkamp with Sherman Award - On July 29, 2008, the USDOJ Antitrust Division presented Professor Herbert Hovenkamp with the prestigious John Sherman Award for his lifetime contributions to the teaching and enforcement of antitrust law and the development of antitrust policy . This annual award is given for outstanding contributions to the field of antitrust law, the protection of American consumers, and the preservation of economic liberty. Hovenkamp's publications include some 70 articles, approximately 50 essays and book reviews, and a dozen books. He is the senior surviving author of Antitrust Law (formerly with Phillip Areeda & Donald Turner), which currently spans 21 volumes, and with Mark Janis and Mark Lemley, author of IP and Antitrust Law.
