On Monday, the George Mason University Law School announced a major coup in hiring Judge Douglas Ginsberg, who was on the faculty of New York University. Judge Ginsberg is a leading scholar of antitrust law who serves as a senior circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He will be joining George Mason University this summer from July.

Right now, the Virginia-based law school can boast of having two superb antitrust scholars on their role. George Mason already has former Federal Trade Commission chairman Timothy Muris, and with the addition of Ginsburg, who headed the DOJ’s antitrust division during 1985-86, prospects are looking good for the school. Antitrust is becoming a field of choice for professional law practice, if we take into account the huge surge in antitrust litigation brought about by acts of corporate greed as well as ever-increasing regulations.

Daniel Polsby, the dean of George Mason’s law school said, “It’s an honor and delight to welcome Judge Ginsburg back to George Mason ….He is a teacher of long experience and matchless depth who understands his subjects from both practical and theoretical perspectives. Our students could not have a better teacher, and we could not have a better colleague.”


Judge Ginsburg had previously taught as an adjunct professor at George Mason for a number of years, and also as a visiting professor at University College of London, Faculty of Laws. He has been on the faculty of New York University for the past two years.

A man known to be good of heart and given to deep thinking, Ginsburg’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court was withdrawn during the time of former president Ronald Reagan, because of disclosures that he smoked marijuana during his days at Harvard Law.
