Philip Marsden, The British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Spencer Weber Waller, Loyola University of Chicago, School of Law - Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, and Philipp Fabbio, Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria - School of Law have posted Antitrust Marathon V: When in Rome Public and Private Enforcement of Competition Law.
ABSTRACT: The Antitrust Marathon is a long-running series of roundtable discussions sponsored by the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies of Loyola University Chicago School of Law and the Competition Law Forum of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, focusing on enduring issues of comparative competition law. These discussions always take place the day before or after the great marathon races of the world which some of the participants also endure. However, no running is required for the roundtable discussion itself. Past Antitrust Marathons have focused on Abuse of Dominance, Antitrust and the Rule of Law; Competition and Consumer Protection, and other topics, and have been held in Chicago, London, Boston and Dublin. We are grateful to the Italian Competition Authority and the University of Rome I (Sapienza) for hosting and being co-sponsors of the 2013 Antitrust Marathon. Our topics this year are: • Public-Private Partnerships for Effective Enforcement • Effective Injunctive Relief • Private Actions for Damages • Criminal Enforcement
