Competition law at a crossroads

with 2 comments

The June issue of The Lawyer  magazine includes a short piece featuring my views on the current debates surrounding competition law, its alleged insufficiencies and its possible reform.

The piece posits that these debates relate not only to the moral underpinnings and ultimate justifications of competition law, but also to wider questions that cut across other areas of law. These have to do with legal certainty, objectivity, the role of expertise in decision-making, the virtues of rule-based system and non-negotiable legal principles.

With The Lawyer’s permission, it is available here. Comments welcome!
