Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

LSE Short Courses 2022: Advanced EU Competition Law (April-May) | State Aid and Subsidies Regulation (May-June)

leave a comment »

Last year, LSE Law School launched the first edition of two Short Courses, one on Advanced EU Competition Law and one on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation. These courses are part of the activities organised around the Jean Monnet Chair that I am proud to hold.

I could not have asked more of the first edition: it was most productive and enjoyable. The format chosen (the courses run online and take place on Friday afternoon over four weeks) allowed professionals to take part in it and contributed to creating a unique atmosphere.

Along with the New Year (Happy 2022!), the Second Edition of the two Short Courses has now gone live. This second iteration is particularly timely, with both competition law and State aid undergoing major transformations almost by the minute. We will discuss these developments and provide a framework to help you make sense of them in their broader context.

For detailed information on each of the two courses (including on the schedule of the sessions and on how to register), please click on the relevant webpage below:

Advanced EU Competition Law (Friday 29th April 2022, 6th May 2022, 13th May 2022 and 20th May 2022).

This course is designed with experienced competition lawyers and economists in mind. It goes beyond the basics and provides the necessary tools to think about, and put in context, recent case law and administrative practice. We will be addressing the ongoing transformations by reference to the fundamentals of the field. The short course is structured around four sessions on agreements, abusive practices, mergers and digital markets.

State Aid and Subsidies Regulation (Friday 27th May 2022, 10th June 2022, 17th June 2022 and 24th June 2022).

Very few institutions offer a dedicated module on State aid, and most officials and practitiones have no choice but to learn the craft along the way. This short course is designed to fill this gap by providing a comprehensive framework. I would very much welcome participants who wish to expand the range of their expertise as well as postgraduate students. This short course covers the key aspects of the EU regime (both substantive and procedural) and also covers the UK subsidy control regime.

Both Short Courses will be delivered online again this year. The times remain unchanged: sessions will take place on Friday afternoon (2pm-6pm London time).

An LSE certificate will be available upon completion, along with CPD points for practitioners.

If you have any questions about the organisational aspects of the two courses, do not hesitate to contact my colleague Amanda Tinnams:
