Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

LSE Short Courses 2023: Advanced EU Competition Law (April-May) | State Aid and Subsidies Regulation (May-June)

leave a comment »

The third edition (!) of the two Short Courses I organise at LSE Law School, one on Advanced EU Competition Law (April-May) and one on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation (May-June), will run again in 2023. These courses are part of the activities around the Jean Monnet Chair that I proudly hold.

The first two editions were a great experience. It was wonderful to discuss recent developments in law and policy with engaged professionals (civil servants, private practitioners, advanced students and even some academics) from around the world.

The two courses (16 hours each) run online and take place on Friday afternoon over four weeks (4 hours every Friday). They are also limited to around 25 participants to maximise interaction (and with a full house last year, interaction was definitely maximised).

With the two fields in a state of flux, this third edition could not be more timely. EU competition law is undergoing fundamental transformations (EU merger control, vertical agreements, abuse of dominance). State aid and of subsidies regulation will see the first steps of two major pieces of legislation (the EU Regulation applying to foreign measures and the brand new UK regime) in 2023.

The idea is to give you an updated account of the most recent developments and help you navigate them by putting them in the broader context and providing an analytical framework.

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 21st April 2023, 28th April 2023, 5th May 2023 and 12th May 2023).

This course is designed with experienced competition lawyers and economists in mind (both working as officials and in private practice). It goes beyond the basics and provides the tools to think about the most recent case law and administrative practice. We will do so by reference to the fundamentals of the field. The short course is structured around four sessions on agreementsabusive practicesmergers and digital markets.

State Aid and Subsidies Regulation (Friday 19th May 2023, 26th May 2023, 2nd June 2023 and 9th June 2023).

Very few European institutions offer a dedicated module on State aid (let alone subsidies regulation). This short course is designed to fill this gap by providing a coherent and comprehensive framework. It welcomes participants who wish to expand the range of their expertise as well as postgraduate students who want to develop an understanding of the field. This short course covers the EU and UK regimes.

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 TinnamsA.Tinnams@lse.ac.uk.
