Civil Practice and Procedure Committee

Composition and Mission

The Civil Practice and Procedure Committee focuses on all aspects of antitrust pretrial practice and procedure. We encourage you to take full advantage of all the Committee has to offer by participating in one or more of the following projects.


This year we are working on multiple books, including the Annual Review of Antitrust Law Developments, Antitrust Discovery Handbook and Indirect Purchaser Litigation Handbook. Other books are in the pipeline so be sure to check here and our social media sites to find out the latest news on available projects!

Newsletter. We have transitioned to an e-bulletin called Perspectives in Antitrust so that we can efficiently alert you to the latest legal developments (see below for more information).

Programs and Teleseminars

Every year the Committee sponsors programs at the Section's annual Spring Meeting and committee programs and teleseminars throughout the year. If you are interested in presenting a committee program or teleseminar, or suggesting an interesting topic for a brownbag or teleseminar, please contact Paul Saint-Antoine (

Young Lawyer Advisory Panel and Perspectives in Antitrust

This year we are pleased to continue with our Young Lawyer Advisory Panel, headed by Kate Wallace and Erica Weisgerber. The YLAP will be responsible for publishing an e-newsletter periodically to report on current legal developments. Each month, a member of the YLAP will be responsible for publishing Perspectives in Antitrust, our new e-bulletin. To get involved, contact Kate ( or Erica (

Often missing amidst a sea of rapid-fire client alerts and inscrutable law review articles are meaningful opportunities for young antitrust lawyers to show off their writing mettle. Perspectives in Antitrust aims to fill that void. Each e-bulletin will provide readers with unique angles on antitrust developments and will serve as an opportunity for young lawyers to contribute to the intellectual discourse.

Website and Social Media

Committee Website and Social Media Sites. We welcome volunteers to work on the Committee website, as well as our social media sites, which currently include Facebook and LinkedIn. Our presence in Social Media is intended to bring timely and relevant information to members and provide forums for member interaction. If you would like to volunteer or recommend content for the social media platforms, contact Kate Wallace ( We especially welcome young lawyers and law students to be involved with the Committee's social media presence.

The CPPC also maintains an ABA Connect page, where we post documents and host discussions via our active listserv. Please visit us on Connect.

Get the most out of your Section and Committee membership by joining in one or more of these volunteer efforts. We hope to hear from you.

The Committee is led by Co-Chairs Elizabeth Haas and Tiffany Rider, with Vice-Chairs Richard Cunningham, Timothy Gallivan, Paul Saint-Antoine, Kathleen Wallace, Ronald Wick and Eric Wilson. Our Young Lawyer Representative is Erica Weisgerber. Our Responsible Council Member is Sean Gates. We are all responsible for membership recruitment and involvement, please feel free to contact any of us if you have any suggestions for future Committee activities or wish to become active in the Committee.
