with one comment

We really look forward to seeing many of you at the conference organised by the LSE Law School in two weeks’ time (12th May, LSE’s Old Theatre). Remember that you can register for free here and that you can reach my colleagues with any inquiries via

You will find an updated version of the programme below. The key novelty you will spot: John Newman (Deputy Director of the Bureau of Competition, Federal Trade Commission; on leave from the University of Miami School of Law) will be sharing some thoughts (in his personal capacity) during the lunch break at LSE’s Shaw Library. We are excited that the audience will get a flavour of the US experience and perspective.

See you very soon for what promises to be a great in-person (finally!) event.
