The mardis du droit de la concurrence at ULB are back: 2021-2022 programme

leave a comment »

The mardis du droit de la concurrence at the ULB’s Institut d’études européennes need no introduction: led by Denis Waelbroeck and Jean-Francois Bellis, they continue to be a classic, and a must, of the Brussels scene. The programme for the new academic year can be downloaded here.

The series will be closed by the President of the Court of Justice, Koen Lenaerts, on 17 May; and includes the traditional overview of the case law on cartels by Fernando Castillo de la Torre (Principal Legal Advisor and Head of the Competition Team at the Commission’s Legal Service).

I am honoured (and very much grateful to Denis and Jean-Francois) to be joining the impressive line-up of speakers to discuss the recent developments on sports and competition law (on 16 November — I hope to see many of you there).

The topic is dear to my heart (you may remember my post on the General Court’s ISU judgment earlier this year) and the invitation could not be more timely (SuperLeague and all). I hope to be able to share a paper ahead of my presentation via the blog.
