Daniel Sarmiento (Universidad Complutense and Uría, previously at the Court of Justice) needs no introduction in our community. He is an illustrious member of an endangered species: the EU law polymath. EU Law Live, of which he is the editor-in-chief, reflects well his broad range of interests. The website has become an inescapable reference for those who want to stay abreast of the case law and beyond. As all of you will know by now, it is an incredibly rich source of information.

As you can imagine, I was delighted when Daniel invited me to discuss, in a podcast, the issues I addressed in The Shaping of EU Competition Law. The podcast can be accessed here and it is about 30 minutes long.

When I wrote the book, I hoped that I would be able to convey to leading EU administrative lawyers like Daniel how many insights they could draw from EU competition law, which after all revolves primarily around an administrative authority entrusted with the power to investigate and decide on potential infringements (and rule on the compatibility of mergers with the internal market).

As I am a bit of a broken record, I have discussed the contents of this book before on the blog (see here for instance, where I cover my presentation with the Amicale des Référendaires). But hopefully Daniel’s great questions and perspectives will add something to ongoing debates. Enjoy the podcast (and the weekend too)!
