Professor Stucke brought 13 years of litigation experience when he joined the UT College of Law faculty in 2007. As a trial attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, he successfully challenged anticompetitive mergers and restraints in numerous industries, and focused on policy issues involving antitrust and the media. As a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, he prosecuted a variety of felony and misdemeanor offenses, including running a weekly docket before the Honorable Thomas Rawles Jones, Jr. As an associate at Sullivan & Cromwell, Professor Stucke assisted in defending Goldman Sachs, CS First Boston, and Microsoft in civil antitrust litigation, and he was presented two awards by The Legal Aid Society for his criminal appellate and defense work.

Prof. Stucke serves as a Senior Fellow at the American Antitrust Institute, an independent Washington, D.C.-based non-profit education, research, and advocacy organization devoted to competition policy.  Professor Stucke chaired a committee on the media industry that drafted a transition report for the incoming Obama administration.  In 2009, Professor Stucke was elected as a member to the Academic Society for Competition Law, appointed to the advisory board of the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, and was asked to serve as one of the United States' non-governmental advisors to the International Competition Network, the only international body devoted exclusively to competition law enforcement and whose members represent national and multinational governmental competition authorities in over 100 jurisdictions.

Prof. Stucke received a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture in 2010-2011 in the People's Republic of China.  He received the W. Allen Separk Faculty Scholarship Award in 2009, and his article, "Behavioral Economists at the Gate: Antitrust in the Twenty-First Century," received the 2007 Jerry S. Cohen Memorial Fund Writing Award for the best antitrust article.  His scholarship has been cited by the U.S. federal courts, the OECD, competition agencies and policymakers.
