The Pros and Cons of Leniency and Criminalization Stockholm Friday 13 November

Pros and Cons 2015

We have a tradition of arranging seminars on major issues, where academics and practitioners meet in the same arena.

The seminars, which are open for competition authority employees, researchers, lawyers and competition consultants, have been appreciated for the open discussion among the participants and we hope that this year’s seminar will be no exception.
