XV edition of the EU & Spanish Competition Law Course

with 2 comments

Some of you may recall from previous posts that both Nicolas and I are heavily involved (although in this case I clearly beat him..) in the organization of an excellent competition law course that Luis Ortiz Blanco has been directing for 15 years in Madrid. Actually, that´s where we met four or five years ago. 

We are of course biased, but we must say that the line-up of more than 70 guest speakers who come every year from all over Europe to lecture in Madrid is a true Who´s Who of EU competition law experts. Moreover, the 115 hours of scheduled classes allow for a more detailed coverage than that offered by many other competition law courses on the market. About half of the course is lectured in English.

The final program for each module and seminar has not yet been decided, but the overall structure and dates have been set, so I´ve included the info below. Anyone interested can register both for the full program or just for specific module/s or seminar/s.  If any of you would like more information you can contact me at alfonso.lamadrid@garrigues.com

The 2012 program will be structured as follows:

– An introductory session -in which Nicolas will play a very prominent role- will take place on January 13.

– On February 3 there will be a seminar on recent developments in relation to Art. 101 (coordinated by Fernando Castillo de la Torre and Eric Gippini Fournier, both from Legal Service of the European Commission).

A seminar on recent developments in abuse of dominance and merger control (8 hours)  jointly coordinated by  Cecilio Madero (Deputy Director General at DG COMP) and by myself will be held on February 24.
