New Global Antitrust Blog started at UC Berkeley School of Law http://berkeleyantitrust.blogspot.com/
Students at UC Berkeley School of law have started a new Antitrust blog focusing on international and comparative antitrust issues. The blog was started by law students, legal professionals and academics who are currently studying at UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). The founders came together for the joint purpose of promoting deeper transnational dialogue about competition law. Members of the blog hail from jurisdictions around the world, from the United States to Poland, from Mexico to Armenia, from Germany to South Korea. They are truly an international group of scholars.
The blog aims to create a platform for students, experts and professionals to write about recent developments in antitrust and competition law, with a particular emphasis on global and comparative topics. The platform hopes to build on the great wealth of cross-jurisdictional knowledge and experience that its members and contributors possess.
With an ever-increasing global economy, a growing consensus that antitrust laws promote sound competition, protect consumers and encourage innovation, these students saw an opportunity to capitalize on the international draw and reputation of Berkeley Law to create a forum to discuss these topics.
People interested in the blog should contact Paul B Goodwin, U.C. Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), Class of 2013 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
