Symposium to Honor Prof’s Contributions

Professor Flynn

Jan. 25, 2006- The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and the Utah Law Review will host a symposium honoring the scholarship of John J. Flynn, Hugh B. Brown Professor of Law Emeritus, who retired from active teaching in May 2005 after more than 40 years in the classroom.

“Recurring Issues in Antitrust Enforcement” will be presented Friday, February 3, from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. in the college’s Sutherland Moot Courtroom.

The nation’s top experts and scholars in the field will participate. They include:

  • Joseph F. Brodley Hon. Frank R. Kenison Distinguished Scholar in Law and professor of law, Boston University
  • Jean W. Burns professor of law emerita, Brigham Young University
  • Darren Bush assistant professor of law, University of Houston
  • Donald A. Campbell associate professor of economics, University of Utah
  • Peter C. Carstensen George H. Young-Bascom Professor of Law, University of Wisconsi
  • Harry First Charles L. Denison Professor of Law, New York University
  • John J. Flynn Hugh B. Brown Professor of Law Emeritus, University of Utah
  • Eleanor M. Fox Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation, New York University
  • Andrew I. Gavil professor of law, Howard University
  • Mark A. Glick professor of economics, University of Utah; director, Utah Law and Economics Society
  • Hillary Greene associate professor of law, University of Utah
  • Warren Grimes professor of law, Southwestern University
  • Herbert Hovenkamp Ben and Dorothy Willie Chair in Law, University of Iowa
  • Robert H. Lande Venable Professor of Law, University of Baltimore
  • Spencer W. Waller professor of law; director, Institute of Consumer Antitrust Studies, Loyola University Chicago School of Law

“There are two reasons why this symposium is important,” says Darren Bush, a Quinney alumnus who organized the symposium. “First and foremost, this symposium honors the work of Professor Flynn. John’s contribution to antitrust scholarship cannot be overstated. In addition to teaching some top-notch antitrust practitioners, John has published countless articles and books on the subject. His influence spans the Congressional Record to Supreme Court decisions to law review articles.

“Second, it has been a decade since Utah has hosted an antitrust symposium. During that time, a lot has changed in antitrust, but what is more striking is how much remains the same. This symposium examines the recurring issues that antitrust scholars and practitioners have encountered for decades in the hope that new light can be shed on these old problems, and new remedies proposed.”
