Competition Law and Policy in the Healthcare Sector: A Trans-Atlantic Perspective

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Competition Law and Policy in the Healthcare Sector: A Trans-Atlantic Perspective

Keynote speech by Prof. Fiona Scott Morton,
Deputy Assistant Attorney General, US Department of Justice


Tuesday 6 December 2011 from 11.30 - 13:30pm
at UCL Faculty of Laws' Bloomsbury Campus

Organised by UCL's Centre for Law, Economics & Society


About the conference

Much healthcare provision is accomplished through networks of providers such as physicians, hospitals, pharmacies, and dentists. Common contract terms between the party organizing the network and the set of providers include non-discrimination terms like MFNs and network participation requirements. The talk will discuss theories of competitive effect and consumer harm resulting from such provisions, and cover empirical evidence of their impact in the healthcare sector.


This event is accredited with 1.5 CPD hours by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, Bar Standard Board and IPReg.
