Herbert Hovenkamp

Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics, Professor of Law at Penn Law; Expert in Antitrust Law and American Legal History, The Wharton School

More

Herbert Hovenkamp has been named the University of Pennsylvania’s 21st Penn Integrates Knowledge University Professor, effective July 2.

The announcement was made today by Penn President Amy Gutmann and Provost Vincent Price.

A world-renowned scholar of antitrust law and policy, Hovenkamp will be the James G. Dinan University Professor, with joint faculty appointments in the Law School and in the Department of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at the Wharton School.

“Herb Hovenkamp is an exceptionally influential scholar of international renown who brings wide-ranging expertise at the intersection of law and business to Penn,” said Penn President Amy Gutmann. “He is a prolific highly-cited author whose work informs key decisions in antitrust law and policy. His unique command of complex issues at the global interaction of law, business, patents and innovation will bolster Penn’s acknowledged leadership in these areas, presenting wonderful new opportunities to foster collaboration and integrate knowledge across disciplines. Professor Hovenkamp epitomizes the uniquely collaborative and multidisciplinary skill sets of our PIK professors, and we are thrilled he is joining Penn’s eminent faculty.”

Called “the dean of American antitrust law” by The New York Times in 2011, Hovenkamp received the John Sherman Award from the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in 2008, awarded a few times a decade for “outstanding achievement in antitrust law, contributing to the protection of American consumers and to the preservation of economic liberty.” He is currently Ben and Dorothy Willie Professor at the University of Iowa College of Law, where he has taught since 1986, and coauthor of the landmark 21-volume Antitrust Law, which has been cited more than 50 times by the Supreme Court and more than 1,000 times by federal courts.

A Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Hovenkamp has been a Fellow of the Rockefeller Foundation and the American Council of Learned Societies at Harvard Law School, Presidential Lecturer at the University of Iowa and the recipient of the University of Iowa Collegiate Teaching Award. Among more than a hundred articles and a dozen books, his Enterprise and American Law, 1836-1937 (Harvard University Press, 1991) received the Littleton-Griswold Prize of the American Historical Association, and Science and Religion in America, 1800-1860 (University of Pennsylvania Press, 1978) received the Choice Award. He earned a J.D., Ph.D. in American Civilization and M.A. in American literature from the University of Texas following a B.A. from Calvin College and taught from 1980 to 1985 at the University of California Hastings College of the Law.

“Herb Hovenkamp will be a tremendous catalyst for our eminence in antitrust and patent law,” Price said. “He is not only a globally acclaimed scholar but also a renowned teacher and mentor. I am confident that his expertise will have a major impact on our students in law, in business and across the University.”

The Penn Integrates Knowledge program was launched by Gutmann in 2005 as a University-wide initiative to recruit exceptional faculty members whose research and teaching exemplify the integration of knowledge across disciplines and who are appointed in at least two schools at Penn.

The James G. Dinan University Professorship is the gift of James G. Dinan, a 1981 graduate of the Wharton School of the University. Dinan founded York Capital Management, a New York-based investment firm in September 1991 and is the chairman, the chief executive officer and a managing Partner of the firm. He is a University trustee and a member of the Wharton Board of Overseers.
