Professor Peter Whelan nominated for an Antitrust Writing Award in the United States

Professor Whelan has been nominated for a prestigious ‘Antitrust Writing Award’, the winners of which will be revealed at a gala dinner in Washington DC in March 2019.

Professor Whelan’s nomination is for a recent publication analysing the interaction of competition law and criminal justice (which will be published in due course in an edited collection produced by Oxford University Press). He has been nominated in the ‘Academic Article’ section of the Awards, which aims to reward writing, scholarship, originality, practical relevance and the contribution that the academic article makes to competition advocacy.

The Antitrust Writing Awards are co-organised annually by Concurrence (which is based in New York) and George Washington University Law School Competition Law Center. They aim to promote competition scholarship and to contribute to competition advocacy.

The 2019 Antitrust Writing Awards jury will select the best competition law writings published in 2018. The Jury comprises global leaders in the field of competition law, including for example a US Federal Trade Commissioner, the Director General of the European Commission's Competition Directorate, the CEO of the Hong Kong Competition Commission, the Chair of the OECD's Competition Committee, and a number of renowned US competition law professors.

This is the second time that Professor Whelan has been nominated for one of these awards. In 2014, one of his competition law articles (published in Oxford Journal of Legal Studies) was nominated, again in the ‘Academic Articles’ section.
