Jay L. Himes spoke on "Issues That Arise in Antitrust Cases That You Don't Learn About in Law School," during a Federal Bar Council CLE program designed exclusively for judicial law clerks.

The program took place on November 18, 2009 from 5:15 - 8:15 p.m. at the U.S. Courthouse in Manhattan. This program also was presented via simultaneous, interactive videoconference to other districts in the Second Circuit. 

The Honorable Lewis A. Kaplan of the Southern District of New York, who was a highly regarded antitrust lawyer in private practice before he went on the bench, served as the moderator of this panel of experienced antitrust practitioners from the Federal Bar Council and the New York State Bar Association Antitrust Section. The program included an overview of the antitrust laws and will cover dispositive motions - both motions to dismiss and summary judgment - after Twombly and Iqbal; class actions, with particular emphasis on the issues raised by IPO, Canadian Cars and Hydrogen Peroxide, as well as Daubert issues; and the litigation of state law claims and pre-emption in federal court.
