Welcome to Erik Hovenkamp's academic website

I am 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.  In spring 2018, I was a Visiting Lecturer at Boston University School of Law.

I earned a Ph.D. in economics from Northwestern University, and a J.D. from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.  My research focuses on patents, antitrust, innovation, and the economic analysis of law.  

On this website, you can access my research, curriculum vitae, and biographical information.
