Announcing the Consumer Protection Video Series!!

The ABA Antitrust Section plans to reach out to students and parents by developing a series of consumer video vignettes, along with lesson plans and teaching aids, for educating high school students on the consumer problems they and their families typically face.

Here are all four videos that have been done so far. The last three still need a celebrity introduction.

The first video is on the dangers of cyber bullying:

Making History -- Oral History Interview Project



The Public Education and Oral History Committee grew out of the success of the Antitrust Section's Oral History Project. Beginning in early 2007, the Oral History Taskforce began to capture the perspectives and memories of the great men and women who have contributed to the growth and development of antitrust law by recording interviews or, more accurately, fascinating conversations between well-known figures in antitrust law. Those taking part have included former Assistant Attorney Generals and Deputy Assistant Attorney Generals for the U.S. Department of Justice's Antitrust Division, former Chairs and Commissioners of the Federal Trade Commission, federal appeals court judges and former Chairs of the ABA Section of Antitrust Law.

To-date we have over 40 fascinating and engaging interviews available to be viewed online. Now that the Taskforce is a formal committee, the work of collecting oral histories is far from over and we expect to conduct approximately ten interviews each year. The interviews usually take place during the spring and fall meetings of the ABA Antitrust Section.

The videos can be downloaded and are also available as streaming media in QuickTime format. If you do not have QuickTime player installed, please download the free version before viewing.

Recorded during the ABA Antitrust Section's 2011 Spring Meeting, the following interviews are now available for your viewing pleasure!

  • Joseph M. Alioto (interviewed by Al Pfeiffer)
  • Michael Denger (interviewed by James R. Loftis)
  • Harry First (interviewed by Andrew I. Gavil)
  • Pamela Jones Harbour (interviewed by Tara Koslov)
  • Michael D. Hausfeld (interviewed by Laurence Sorkin)
  • Robert T. Joseph (interviewed by James Wilson)
  • Donald C. Klawiter (interviewed by John H. Shenefield)
  • Deborah Platt Majoras (interviewed by Janet L. McDavid)
  • Hon. Judge Vaughn R. Walker (interviewed by Hon. Judge Douglas R. Ginsburg)

Special thanks to Annette Cook, our filming director, for her tireless dedication and enthusiasm for the project.
