Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

I was baffled yesterday when I learnt that Professor Richard Whish is leaving King’s College London.

Richard is one of our antitrust gods (we are polytheists at chillincompetition), and the author of a true competition bible.

(Click here to read our Friday-slot interview with him).

How can King’s let Richard go? If I were King’s dean, I would have offered a raise.

PS: I attach hereafter the slides I presented yesterday at a conference on Aims and Values in EU Competition Law in Copenhagen. The slides make a number of remarks on (i) industrial policy and competition law; and (ii) the current status of the Guidance paper on Article 102 TFEU.

Aims and Values in EU Competition Law – N PETIT (19 09 12)

Thanks to Caroline Heide Jorgensen and Christian Bergqvist for having me on the programme of this very good conference.

  2. Things are moving at KCL. First, Professor Eeckhout left for UCL. Now Whish leaves as well. It looks like the new dean is trying its best to get rid of the excellent reputation KCL has for EU law. It would be no surprise if other big names of EU law would follow their example in the foreseeable future.
