Description

Competition Law in a Global Context: Analysing the Trans-Atlantic Divide

A growing number of companies operate on a global scale attracting the scrutiny of multiple competition law authorities around the world. As some of the largest and most developed antitrust jurisdictions in the world, the US and the EU are often looked upon as influential authorities on competition law standards and approaches. They do not always agree, but they are not necessarily as divergent as it is sometime suggested in the literature. This conference will discuss the relationship between the two jurisdictions.

To examine these issues the conference will bring together academics, practitioners, and regulators from the EU and the US. It will consist of four panels, one of which will be structured as a moderated conversation among current and former enforcers from the US and Europe:

  • Anticompetitive Agreements
  • A Conversation with Competition Law Enforcers
  • Objectives of Competition Law
  • Competition Law and IP

The conference is jointly organised and funded by the Centre for Business Law and Practice at the School of Law and the International Center for Law and Economics in Portland, OR, USA.

Confirmed speakers include:

- Rainer Becker, DG Competition

- Alan Devlin, Georgetown Law School

- Ariel Ezrachi, Oxford University

- Douglas Ginsburg, US Court of Appeals, DC Circuit

- Bill Kolasky, Hughes Hubbard & Reed

- Tad Lipsky, Federal Trade Commission

- Geoff Manne, International Center for Law and Economics

- Philip Marsden, Competition and Markets Authority

- Marek Martyniszyn, Queens University

- Nicolas Petit, Université de Liège

- Hedvig Schmidt, University of Southampton

The conference will be preceded by Professor Pinar Akman’s Inaugural Lecture, which will take place at 5.00 pm on 14 September 2017 at the School of Law, University of Leeds. Additional registration for the Inaugural Lecture is required:
