CALL FOR PAPERS
Current Research in Competition Law
XVIIIth Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) Workshop
Thursday September 22nd 2011 City Law School, City University, Grays Inn, London
The Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) will be running a workshop on 22nd September 2011. The subject of the workshop will be the broad theme of Current Research in Competition Law. We invite applications from researchers in competition law covering the whole field but focussing on recent research projects they have been involved with over the last couple of years; projects with regulatory agencies; projects with think tanks or law & economics projects. We would be particularly interested in research aspects of competition law where there is a comparative aspect or based on the interplay between law and politics, and the workshop would hope to discuss a broad range of research issues, whether empirical or otherwise, such as merger remedies, cartel procedures, the role of behavioural economics in competition law etc. We also welcome applications by law firms or regulatory agencies where research has been undertaken in a competition law field. Papers are invited from scholars, regulators and practitioners on any of these issues or other topics which fall generally within the broad theme of Current Research in Competition Law. Any person interested in presenting a paper at the workshop is asked to contact the Chair of CLaSF, Professor Alan Riley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the first instance an abstract is required of approximately 500-1000 words, a draft paper is also required a week prior to the workshop. Please submit your abstract by Friday 15th July. Papers presented at the workshop can be submitted to the Competition Law Review editorial board with a view to being published in the Review. Note that the Review is a fully refereed scholarly law journal: Submission does not guarantee publication.
