Chicago (Antitrust) Marathon

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

To coincide with the Chicago Marathon in two weeks will be the the Chicago Antitrust Marathon.  On Friday October 5th , the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies at the Loyola University of Chicago School of Law is co-sponsoring The Antitrust Marathon with the Competition Law Forum (CLF) of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law.  The Antitrust Marathon is a half day round table discussion of single firm dominance from a comparative perspective.  The discussion will be based on the monopolization portion of the recent report of the Antitrust Modernization and a series of short issue papers about the purpose of monopolization law, defining market power, what is or should be a violation, remedies, and private enforcement.  An edited transcript will appear in the Loyola Consumer Law Review.
