Scott Hemphill

Scott Hemphill teaches and writes about antitrust, intellectual property, and regulation of industry. His research focuses on the law and economics of competition and innovation, and his scholarship ranges broadly, from drug patents to net neutrality to fashion and intellectual property. Hemphill’s 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 US Supreme Court and the California Supreme Court, among others, and has formed the basis for congressional testimony on matters of regulatory policy. Hemphill's writing has appeared in law reviews, peer-reviewed journals, and the popular press, including the Yale Law JournalScience, and the Wall Street Journal. He joined NYU from Columbia Law School, where he was a professor of law. Hemphill has also served as antitrust bureau chief for the New York Attorney General and clerked for Judge Richard Posner of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and Justice Antonin Scalia of the Supreme Court. He holds a JD and PhD in economics from Stanford, an AB from Harvard, and an MSc in economics from the London School of Economics, where he studied as a Fulbright Scholar.
