Conference Announcement

This looks like a terrific event. I wish I could attend. Perhaps the Society can make available a tape or transcript of the proceedings to those interested.


THE FEDERALIST SOCIETY AND ITS CORPORATIONS, SECURITIES & ANTITRUST PRACTICE GROUP INVITE YOU TO ATTEND AN IMPORTANT PANEL DISCUSSION CONCERNING:

Antitrust Modernization and Public Choice
The Federalist Society concludes its antitrust panel series with a panel focusing on public choice and institutional issues. Since its inception, substantive antitrust law has been largely crafted by judges applying the broad provisions of the Sherman Act on a case-by-case basis. Issues addressed will include the "modernization" of antitrust that has already occurred under the court's common law approach, the need for changes in the balance between judicial, statutory, and regulatory approaches to antitrust, the effects of having two federal and fifty state enforcement agencies with largely overlapping authority, the costs and benefits of antitrust for consumer welfare, and ultimately, whether the Modernization Commission and any subsequent legislative action are likely to do more harm than good.

The Honorable Frank H. Easterbrook, United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit
William E. Kovacic, General Counsel, Federal Trade Commission
A. Douglas Melamed, Partner, Wilmer Culter Pickering Hale and Dorr


DATE: Wednesday, October 27, 2004
TIME: 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. (Lunch will be served.)
