16th ASCOLA Conference

We are planning to have the 16th annual event in Porto, on 1-3 July 2021. Please find the Call for Papers with all relevant information here.

Competition Law in Isolation Talks

After lockdowns and travel restrictions set in, the ASCOLA UK Chapter under the leadership of Magali Eben and Or Brook started a series of virtual talks called “Competition Law in Isolation”. This format developed to be an ace opportunity to showcase ongoing work and to discuss current issues of competition law. For more information, join the mailing list by addressing the organisers Magali Eben (Glasgow) or Or Brook (Leeds) or check out the Twitter account @AscolaUK!

Further competition talks have in the meantime been organised by other Regional Chapters of ASCOLA. We are happy and grateful for such a well-functioning network! Please check out the announcements on LinkedIn and Twitter or address the heads of the Regional Chapters for being included in the mailing lists.

15th ASCOLA Conference

Annual ASCOLA (Virtual) Conference
The 15th ASCOLA Conference took place as a virtual event from June 25– 27 June 2020 with around 100 talks over three days, scheduled so as to accomodate different time zones. A keynote address was given by the EU Commission’s Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager. Several special events, like book presentations, an economist panel and a panel for young scholars with tips for a successful career by distinguished professors made this Virtual Conference a memorable experience. It was organised on a virtual basis due to the 2020 pandemic when travelling was not an option. The organising team was constituted from the universities of Düsseldorf, Haifa and Zurich.

14th ASCOLA Conference

Aix-en-Provence Faculty of Law
The 14th ASCOLA conference took place at Aix-en-Provence on June 27– 29 June 2019. Professor David Bosco and his team had invited the ASCOLA community to Southern France where we experienced one of the hottest conferences ever. Temperatures on the outside were somewhat matched by the intense discussions inside. The general topic was “Challenges to Assumptions at the Basis of Competition Law”. Apart from this general theme, breakout sessions were held on wider competition law issues. The conference also featured an economist session, a session on teaching and a visit to a vineyard.
