Third annual international conference on competition law hosted by the School of Law

On 15 September 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, unraveling 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.
