Professor Akman nominated for 2017 Antitrust Writing Awards

Professor Pinar Akman’s research (co-authored with Professor Daniel Sokol from the University of Florida) has been nominated for an Antitrust Writing Award 2017.

Their article, entitled ‘Online RPM and MFN under Antitrust Law and Economics’, examines a highly topical concern for competition laws around the world: the competition law assessment of online resale price maintenance and most-favoured-nation clauses. It will be published in 2017 by the Review of Industrial Organization, a leading US-based economics journal. The article is available in advance access here.

The Antitrust Writing Awards are run annually by the New York-based Institute of Competition Law and the Competition Law Centre at George Washington University's Law School. The goal of these awards is to promote antitrust scholarship and competition advocacy by recognising and awarding the best articles published in the antitrust law and law & economics fields in the last 12 months. The winners of this year’s awards will be announced at a Gala Dinner in Washington DC in April 2017.
