Robert Jerry
UF Law Dean; Levin Mabie & Levin Professor of Law

“UF law school applications down among national decrease” (Feb. 5, 2013, The Alligator)

The article discusses a trend of decreasing law school applications nationwide, including at UF Law. Jerry addresses the issue.

From the article:
Robert Jerry, dean of UF Law, said the decrease in the job market for new law graduates may have impacted the decline in applications.

Jerry is remaining positive, though he admits changes in the field of law heightened the effect this recession has had on law firms.

“It doesn’t mean the need for new law graduates is going to disappear,” he said. “We still need prosecutors, public defenders and judges, and we will always have a justice system.”

Daniel Sokol
Associate Professor of Law

“U.S. Fights AB InBev With Tested Game Plan” (Feb. 3, 2013, Wall Street Journal)

The U.S. Justice Department is opposing the acquisition of the Mexican beer company, Grupo Modelo by Anheuser-Busch. The Justice Department said companies like Modelo help keep the market competitive in the face of giants like Anheuser-Busch.

From the article:
“The Justice Department has learned very well what works in court,” says University of Florida law professor D. Daniel Sokol. “If you can tell a story about a firm constraining prices, that’s a good story to tell a judge. And nothing tells a better story than documents.”

Or AB InBev and Modelo could argue that the relevant market is alcoholic beverages generally—meaning wine and other beverages also help keep prices in check.

“Defining the market is 90% of the game,” says the University of Florida’s Prof. Sokol. “If you win that battle, the rest is easy.”
