My International and Comparative Antitrust Seminar

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

This was the last week of classes at the University of Wisconsin Law School.  My international and comparative antitrust law and economics seminar exposed students to different ways of thinking about antitrust and competition policy issues from around the world.  We covered cases and case studies from the United States, EU, Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, UK, Singapore, South Africa, and Canada across a number of substantive areas of antitrust law and economics.  Our class would not have been as successful without the participation of our guest lecturers.  These experts provided critical insights to our understanding from enforcement and private sector perspectives:

Tom Burt, Microsoft
Radoslav Depolo, Tribunal de Defensa de la Libre Competencia (Chile)
Ken Glazer, Federal Trade Commission
Jim Griffin, King & Spaulding
Alberto Heimler, Autorita Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato (Italy)
Ken Heyer, Department of Justice/Antitrust Division
Shyam Kehmani, World Bank
Joe Krauss, Hogan & Hartson
Tad Lipsky, Latham & Watkins
Bruce McDonald, Jones Day
Randy Tritell, Federal Trade Commission

The other experiment in the class was to have a mix of JD, LLM (on of whom previously worked at the Taiwan FTC) and economics PhD students trying to approach the same material from their different perspectives.  The diversity of skill-sets and backgrounds enriched our class discussions.   Given that outside of the classroom economists and lawyers need to interface on antitrust issues, our class was early exposure of this interaction.
