Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

OUT NOW: Special Issue on Google Shopping in JECLAP

leave a comment »

On behalf of JECLAP‘s editorial team, I am proud to announce the publication of the Special Issue dedicated to the General Court’s ruling in Google Shopping.

You can be access it here. Choosing the pieces was not an easy task (we received over 30 submissions in no time), but we could not be more delighted about the end-product.

The contributions are invariably thoughtful and approach the judgment from different angles (some more practical, other more theory-minded). As an editorial team, we are particularly happy that this Special Issue provides a platform to new voices in academia and the world of practice (we are convinced they will become household names in the near future).

If you are curious, below is a glimpse of what the Special Issue offers (I will be discussing some pieces in closer detail in the coming weeks). If (for reasons beyond comprehension) you or your institution are not yet subscribed to JECLAP, you will be pleased to see that some contributions are available in Open Access format.

Enjoy and do not hesitate to contact us and/or the authors with any comments!
