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.
Indirect Purchaser Litigation Handbook. Contact Elizabeth Haas. The Indirect Purchaser Litigation Handbook is intended to be a guide for practitioners and courts who are facing indirect purchser litigation. As we are in the beginning stages of this project, we are looking for both editors and drafters and would especially appreciate assistance from experienced practitioners.
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 Amy Manning or Jeff Jacobovitz.
Young Lawyer Advisory Board and Perspectives in Antitrust
This year we are pleased to introduce our Young Lawyer Advisory Board, headed by Tiffany Rider and Frank Qi (firstname.lastname@example.org). The YLAB will be responsible for publishing an e-newsletter periodically to report on current legal developments. Each month, a member of the YLAB will be responsible for publishing Perspectives in Antitrust, our new e-bulletin. To get involved, contact Tiffany or Frank.
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.
We are very excited to launch the inaugural issue of Perspectives in Antitrust with an interview with former Acting Assistant Attorney General Joe Wayland, as he transitions between public service and private practice.
Website and Discussion List
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 Twitter and LinkedIn. In connection with our Discussion List, the Committee has recently expanded its presence into social media 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 Joyce Choi (email@example.com) or Frank Qi (firstname.lastname@example.org). We especially welcome young lawyers and law students to be involved with the Committee's social media presence.
Committee Discussion List. The Committee relies on its moderated Discussion List to distribute the Committee newsletter, information about Committee programs, and other news and information of interest to our members. We welcome volunteers to assist with Discussion List activities. If you would like to volunteer or recommend content for distribution using the Committee Discussion List, contact Amy Manning or Joyce Choi (email@example.com).
