1st Annual Conference: An Agenda for Antitrust in the 21st Century

Date: June 15, 2000
Location: National Press Club, Washington DC

The AAI’s first annual national conference was held on June 15, 2000. The theme of the first conference was “An Agenda for Antitrust in the 21st Century.” Participants included FTC Chairman Robert Pitofsky whose keynote address called attention to intellectual property law’s increasing sway in the antitrust arena. At the luncheon, U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno delivered her first and only major antitrust speech, a review of the achievements of Joel Klein’s term as Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust. Mr. Klein then became the first recipient of the Antitrust Achievement Award. The various papers that were delivered at the conference were published in a special edition of 62 Univ. of Pittsburgh Law Review. This conference set the tone for all annual future conferences which were all held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC and followed by symposium law review issues.
