Chen’s Study of Generic Drug Market Wins ABA Student Writing Award

Third-year law student Tom Chen is the recipient of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law’s 2006 award for student writing for his article examining the controversial practice in which brand-name drug companies release generic versions of their own drug after their patent is challenged. Chen investigated the issue from an antitrust perspective in his paper, "Authorized Generics: A Prescription for Hatch-Waxman Reform," which will be published in the April issue of the Virginia Law Review.
