The Public Education and Oral History Committee grew out of the success of the Antitrust Section's Oral History Project, a project launched in 2007 by the Oral History Task Force. The goal of the Oral History Project was 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. To date, over fifty interviews have been video-recorded, and the Committee continues to conduct interviews annually. These videos are available to be viewed online or as podcasts.

In addition to preserving the history of the ABA Section of Antitrust law, the Public Education and Oral History Committee has engaged in projects designed to educate the public about the antitrust laws and various consumer protection issues.
