Our Curious Amalgam

A New Syllabus For Antitrust Class? Meet the Authors of the New Open Source U.S. Antitrust Law Casebook

Alicia L. Downey and Sarah Zhang

Legal textbooks have always been expensive but these days, the cost of a new commercially published antitrust law casebook can range from $300 to $500. What if a high-quality casebook were available at little or no cost? With the support of the ABA Antitrust Law Section, NYU Law School Professors Christopher Sprigman and Daniel Francis recently completed the world’s first openly licensed antitrust law casebook. Listen to this episode as they talk with co-hosts Alicia Downey and Sarah Zhang about this important project and whether eliminating the expense of traditional casebooks might lead to an increase in law students taking antitrust and potentially pursuing careers in the field.
