ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- George Mason University Law School welcomed two new professors to its faculty, the school announced on Thursday.
"George Mason University School of Law welcomes the Honorable Douglas H. Ginsburg and Professor Damien Geradin as full-time members of its faculty. A welcome reception was held on Thursday, September 12 in their honor," a GMU spokeswoman said.
Ginsburg used to be a member of NYU's Law faculty and he was also a professor at Harvard University. He continues to serve as the senior Circuit Court Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC region.
"Mr. Geradin was previously a member of the University of Michigan law faculty and has broad experience in EU competition law, intellectual property, and the regulation of network industries. He has advised businesses, governments, and regulatory agencies on issues impacting various industries, including media, energy and transport," GMU officials said.
"Both are remarkably accomplished, internationally visible, and experienced scholars and teachers of antitrust law. They join our existing strong cadre of antitrust scholars, Professors Bruce Kobayashi, Henry Butler, Bruce Johnsen, and Thomas Hazlett, as well as Professors Timothy Muris (formerly chairman of the Federal Trade Commission) and Joshua Wright (currently on leave serving as a Federal Trade Commissioner)," said George Mason University School of Law Dean Daniel Polsby. "We thus place at our students' disposal one of the most powerful competition law faculties in any law school in the United States."
