Third Annual International Conference on Competition Law hosted by the School of Law

11 October 2017 | Rebekah Bradley

On 15 September 2017, the Centre for Business Law and Practice and the International Center for Law and Economics jointly organised the School’s third annual international conference on competition law.

This year's topic was "Competition Law in a Global Context: Analysing the Trans-Atlantic Divide." The conference considered the long controversial divide between US and EU competition law regimes. It consisted of four panels of experts, unravelling the full spectrum of contemporary competition law issues, from anti-competitive agreements to the objectives of competition law and with notable contributions from leading academics, practitioners and regulators.

The conference was preceded by Professor Pinar Akman's Inaugural Lecture, entitled "In Search of Principles for Abuse of Market Power".
