New York University

Scott Hemphill, Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, teaches and writes about antitrust, intellectual property, and regulation of industry. He holds a JD and PhD in economics from Stanford, an AB from Harvard, and an MS. in economics from the London School of Economics, where he studied as a Fulbright Scholar. He served as Antitrust Bureau Chief for the New York Attorney General and clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court. Hemphill joined NYU from Columbia Law School, where he was a professor of law. Hemphill’s research focuses on the law and economics of competition and innovation. His scholarship ranges broadly, from drug patents to net neutrality to fashion and intellectual property. Recent work examines the antitrust problem of parallel exclusion in concentrated industries and anticompetitive settlements of patent litigation by drug makers. His scholarship has been cited by the United States Supreme Court and California Supreme Court, among others, and formed the basis for congressional testimony on matters of regulatory policy. His writing has appeared in law reviews, peer-reviewed journals, and the popular press, including the Yale Law Journal, Science, and the Wall Street Journal.
