Antitrust Federalism: Enhancing the Federal-State Relationship
7, 2009, 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
“Antitrust Federalism: Enhancing the Federal-State Relationship,” a conference that will outline new measures the government is taking to strengthen its antitrust laws, and how agencies can collaborate more effectively in joint law enforcement efforts under the Obama administration. In the past, federal and state officials had a contentious relationship, resulting in missed opportunities to make antitrust enforcement more efficient and effective. Now, at a time when resources are at a premium, there is a greater need for state and federal governments to cooperate with each other and coordinate efforts.
The conference is being hosted by the Columbia Law School National State Attorneys General Program and the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG).
