Liang Li wins Best Junior Paper Award at ASCOLA2024

Liang Li is the winner of the 2024 Best Junior Paper Award of the Academic Society for Competition Law (ASCOLA). Her paper, presented at the Annual Conference in Würzburg, has the title: “A Reconception of Power in Competition Law with Its Application in the Digital Realm”, and it partly builds on her PhD thesis. Liang Li is an Associate Professor and an MA tutor at the China University of Political Science and Law, Beijing. The Jury was chaired by Fabiana Di Porto with David Gerber and Thomas Cheng as further jurors. The Jury said that the paper “is impressive for its willingness to challenge the existing understanding of something as fundamental as the concept of market power and proposes a workable alternative. It does so by providing a new and original theoretical framework and taxonomy, that might have several possible applications.” The photo shows Liang Li with Thomas Cheng, member of the jury and of the ASCOLA Executive Committee.
