Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

GCLC Annual Conference – 8 and 9 November

with one comment

Back from HK where I had a great time. Will report on this later in the week.

As I am currently working on a paper for the forthcoming GCLC Annual Conference, I just realised we had not advertised this event on the blog.

So here we go. On 8 and 9 November, the GCLC will hold its Eighth Annual Conference. This 2012 edition is entitled “Competition law in times of economic crisis: In need for adjustment?” More information on the programme can be found here.

As usual, working groups have drafted reports which will be commented upon – inter alia – by Commission officials.

This undoubtedly will be a promising event. Unfortunately, I had to breach ethical rule n°3; “do not take speaking slots at conferences that you organize”. The explanation? Most of the persons we contacted to draft the paper on industrial policy and competition law  – including my learned co-blogger – turned our invitation down. So I ended up filling this slot. But this is a great honour, and am very happy to do this.

PS: Alfonso and I have just decided that will be no more Chuck Norris jokes on this blog :(.
