Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

We are delighted to advertise a couple of forthcoming events taking place next week before it’s too late.

Lunch talk with the Hon. Makam Delrahim in Brussels (21 February): Our friends from the GCLC have organised a lunch talk, to take place on Wednesday of next week. Makan Delrahim, the current US Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division will be meeting the Brussels community. It certainly sounds like a unique chance! It will all happen at Residence Palace, starting at noon. Information on how to register can be found here.

By the way: I have checked the Eurostar timetable and, if you rush, you should be able to make it for the event organised by Ioannis Lianos on search and net neutrality in the EU and the US. I will be one of the speakers. Conveniently, the event will take place at UCL, which is quite close to St Pancras Station 🙂 . More info here.

Workshop on evidence and judicial review in Madrid (23 February): In the context of the competition law course organised in Madrid by Alfonso and Luis Ortiz Blanco, Fernando Castillo and Eric Gippini (two good friends of the blog) will coordinate an exciting workshop on Evidence and Judicial Review in EU Competition Law. The event will take place at IEB, right behind the gorgeous building you see on the picture above – the one with the blue skies, in case you are wondering which.

You can find all necessary information on how to register for this event in this document.

Eric and Fernando have managed to put together an exciting programme with top speakers, which I copy below (as a bonus, both Alfonso and myself will attending the seminar):
