Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Call for abstracts | JECLAP Special Issue on Google Shopping

End-of-year presents from JECLAP | Chillin'Competition

The Journal of European Competition Law & Practice (of which I am the Joint General Editor alongside Gianni De Stefano) will be publishing a Special Issue devoted to the Google Shopping judgment.

We have already received a number of fascinating proposals, and we would very much welcome more of them. You should email me ( by Friday of next week (3 December) if interested in contributing.

The proposal should take the form of an abstract of max. 250 words in which you outline:

  • The aspect of the judgment on which you would like to focus; and
  • The contribution your piece is expected to make.

If you submit an abstract, we expect the final article (of around 7,000-10,000 words) to be submitted by mid-January (the idea is to make sure that the Special Issue remains topical). And, as usual, please clarify in your proposal whether you have any conflicts of interests.

We will select abstracts to maximise diversity and balance in the Special Issue. We would be particularly keen to publish new voices and perspectives.

In line with the above, we will be prioritising pieces that add value and enrich our understanding of law, economics and/or policy (and that do so by focusing on one particular aspect or dimension of the judgment).

In the same vein, we will not publish pieces that are eminently descriptive or that amount in essence to a case note covering the various issues raised by the judgment – we would love the Special Issue to work as a coherent whole and to avoid repetition.

We will contact all authors whose abstract has been selected in due course (if there was any doubt, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, as some of you have already done).

Have a wonderful weekend!
