Welcome to Erik Hovenkamp's academic website

Beginning in fall 2019, I will be an assistant professor at USC Gould School of Law. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Law School, in the private law Project. I'm also a Visiting Fellow in Yale Law School's Information Society Project.  

I earned a Ph.D. in economics at Northwestern University and a J.D. from Northwestern's Pritzker School of Law. 

My research focuses on antitrust, patents, innovation, and law and economics.
