Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

LSE Short Course on Advanced EU Competition Law (June 2021)

leave a comment »

Last August, I was awarded a Jean Monnet Chair in Competition and Regulation by the European Commission. The primary purpose of the project was to expand teaching activities at the London School of Economics. It was a wonderful occasion to broaden our regular LLM offer and to introduce innovative short courses intended for professionals.

Often, when presenting at conferences, I get the impression that many in the competition law community have an appetite for examining matters in a more systematic, in-depth way, to get a sense of the overall picture and how the different pieces fit together.

With this audience in mind, I have designed a Short Course on Advanced EU Competition Law. All the information about it can be found here. For further queries, including registration and fees, please contact my colleague Amanda Tinnams at

The idea is to meet online (via Zoom) over four Fridays in June (4th, 11th, 18th and 25th) To maximise interaction, the short course will be capped at 25 participants.

The goal of the Short Course is to discuss some fundamental matters at length and well beyond the basics. I intend to cover points of principle and the most recent developments. The meetings would run from 2pm-6pm (London time) and would be structured as follows:

  • Day 1 (4th June): Advanced Issues on Agreements.
  • Day 2 (11th June): Advanced Issues on Abusive practices.
  • Day 3 (18th June): Focus on Digital Markets.
  • Day 4: (25th June): Advanced Issues on Merger control.

A certificate will be available on completion, along with CPD points for practitioners. It would be wonderful to get to meet some of you for the occasion!

Please note: another Short Course on State Aid (identical 16-hour format) will be going live in July.
