Mason Law Professors Share Article of the Year Award

Professor Joshua D. Wright and Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg received the Article of the Year Award at the 2014 Global Competition Review (GCR) Awards on Tuesday, March 25.

The winning article, The Goals of Antitrust: Welfare Trumps Choice, was selected by GCR for its “sophisticated rebuttal of ‘consumer choice’ models proposed by Averitt & Lande, based on empirical evidence and an understanding of contemporary economic theory,” according to a press release. The annual award recognizes an article that “captures current thinking, novel theories or unique perspectives” on issues related to antitrust law.

The award was presented at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. Readers of GCR, a leading competition law and policy journal and news service, nominated and voted for the award winners.

Professor Wright currently serves as a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission, on leave from the School of Law. Judge Ginsburg joined the law faculty as Professor of Law in July 2013 and also serves as a Senior Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
