Bostoen, Friso KU Leuven
Friso Bostoen (°1993) obtained his Bachelor and Master of Laws at the University of Leuven, graduating magna cum laude in July 2016. As a part of his master’s program he spent a semester in Australia, studying at the University of Sydney. He wrote his master’s thesis on the competition law infringement ‘margin squeeze’, with a focus on the interplay between competition law and sector-specific regulation. During his studies, Friso enjoyed participating in two moot courts (Mertens de Wilmars and ELSA Belgium National Moot Court Competition), finishing as a finalist twice. He also completed a number of internships with a focus on competition law, both in the public sector (Belgian Competition Authority) and in the private sector (Van Bael & Bellis, Clifford Chance). As of September 2016, Friso is working as a full-time PhD researcher under prof. dr. Wouter Devroe at the Research Institute for Consumer, Competition & Market. He is researching the relation between online platforms and their suppliers under EU competition law (especially Art. 102 TFEU).
