Join the Competition Section’s first international summer antitrust conference on 23 and 24 June 2021.

The United Kingdom competition law field has been part of the EU legal landscape for many years but now enters a new period of independence, with EU law running alongside the UK regime. We recognize that the UK competition law profession is now, more than ever, part of the international landscape.

Learning objectives

The conference is structured with a mix of engaging panel sessions chaired by recognised experts in the field, aiming to help you:

  • stay updated on merger control, antitrust enforcement and competition litigation
  • gain invaluable tips covering recent cases
  • understand the key issues that competition law practitioners will face within the next 12 months

Target audience

All lawyers whose practices touch on competition law and antitrust issues, whether specialist practitioners, barristers, economists, in-house practitioners, regulators, international firms, or those with a more general interest in the subject.


Date: 23 and 24 June 2021
Time: 10am on 23 June to 6pm on 24 June
