Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

LSE Short Course on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation (July 2021)

leave a comment »

As mentioned last time, LSE Law is organising a Short Course on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation in July 2021. This course is part of the activities organised around the Jean Monnet Chair in Competition and Regulation.

More information about the short course can be found here. Do not hesitate to contact my colleague Amanda Tinnams at for registration and fees (or for any other queries).

This area is undergoing substantial change: EU State aid law keeps growing in complexity and the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement provides the basis for the development of a subsidies regime in the UK.

The idea behind the course is to get you up to speed in the field. It is intended for (i) practising lawyers that are or may be exposed to State aid law and/or subsidies regulation but have not studied the subject in any formal or in-depth way; (ii) in-house lawyers who would benefit from a greater understanding of the risks involved in the award of subsidies and similar measures; and (iii) professionals and students with an interest in developing an expertise in the field.

The course will be run online (via Zoom) over four Fridays in July (2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd) To maximise interaction, the short course will be capped at 25 participants.

The meetings will run from 2pm-6pm (London time) and will cover both the EU State aid law system and the subsidies provisions enshrined in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (including on enforcement) and will be structured as follows:

  • Day 1 (2nd July): Scope of provisions on subsidies and State aid.
  • Day 2 (9th July): Advantage and selectivity/specificity.
  • Day 3 (16th July): Special focus on tax measures (tax rulings, digital taxes and beyond).
  • Day 4: (23rd July ): Procedure and enforcement.

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