ABA Antitrust Section Economics Grant Program
Economic theory has played and will continue to play a central role in the application and development of antitrust and consumer protection law in the United States and across the globe. In keeping with the ABA Antitrust Section's goals of promoting the development of antitrust and consumer protection law and practice, the Section has created the ABA Antitrust Section Economics Grant Program ("AASEGP").

Who We Are


The Economics Committee is a major economics resource for the Section and other Committees. The Committee's mission is to contribute in a number of ways economics-related expertise and content relevant to antitrust law, policy, and litigation, through programs, publications, and cooperation and consultation with the Section and other Committees. We have created and sponsored (and will continue to create and sponsor) programs that provide one-half day economics and econometrics fundamentals for various topics in antitrust economics and econometrics. This includes what has become an annual one-half day program on Antitrust Economics and Econometrics Fundamentals at the Spring Meetings. We also have created and sponsored and will continue to create and sponsor brown bags, CLE programs, teleseminars, and Program sessions on important economics-related issues.

The Committee has been, and continues to be, very active in publications. Current publication projects include contributions to Antitrust Law Developments, an update of the Market Power monograph, an update of the Section's treatise on Econometrics: Legal, Practical, and Technical Issues, and a volume on market definition. The Committee produces a newsletter and is involved in the 'Free Lunch' feature of Antitrust magazine.

The Committee has an active listserv and website. It sends out monthly summaries of recent important papers on antitrust economics over its listserv. Its website has a variety of materials, including summaries of recent important antitrust cases involving Daubert motions. The Committee also has posted on its website reading lists on fundamentals of antitrust economics, applied econometrics, and game theory. The Committee also has posted lists of the important articles of the chief economists of the Department of Justice Antitrust Division and the FTC.


The Committee and its activities are designed for participation by lawyers and economists, with its written materials and programs aimed primarily at an audience of lawyers who are not experts in economics.

Committee members may have the opportunity to contribute to our programs and publications.

The Committee's List Serve, AT-ECON, allows us to inform Committee members about upcoming programs and late-breaking developments relating to the application of economic theory in antitrust policy and litigation. We encourage our List Serve subscribers to initiate discussions on topics related to economics and antitrust that may be of interest to the members of the Committee and more broadly of the ABA Antitrust Section. Those subscribers wishing to start discussions or post replies anonymously can e-mail their requests to the Chair or one of the Vice Chairs (by clicking on the "Contact Committee Leadership" link on the right-hand side of the top of this page), and we will post the message for you.
