|9:30 am||REGISTRATION AND BREAKFAST|
|10:15 am||PANEL 1: GOVERNMENT ENFORCEMENT|
Government enforcement agencies play a key role in enforcing the antitrust laws. The FTC, DOJ, and FCC all review mergers and challenge anticompetitive behavior. This panel reviews recent changes and developments in government enforcement and discusses what the role of government enforcement should be.
Charles L. Denison Professor of Law, New York University School of Law
|11:45 am||COFFEE BREAK|
|12:00 pm||PANEL 2: ANTITRUST AND INNOVATION|
One of the most important questions facing antitrust practice in the coming decades is that of how antitrust should encourage and interact with innovation. There is a tension between policies that encourage innovation, such as granting temporary monopolies to innovators, and the antitrust laws that foster competition. How should these interests be balanced?
Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation, New York University School of Law
|1:15 pm||LUNCH BREAK|
|2:30 pm||PANEL 3: PRIVATE ENFORCEMENT|
This panel will discuss developments in private antitrust suits, including class actions following government investigations and suits brought by competitors over harm to competition.
