Announcements






Welcome




The International Committee keeps its members from around the world abreast of the latest developments in international competition law and U.S. antitrust developments with international implications. Through Committee-produced programs, quarterly newsletters, list-serve updates, and publications, members are kept informed on a range of international competition issues, including enforcement trends, leading cases, international convergence efforts, and agency staff changes. The International Committee also participates in the Section's outreach to foreign enforcement agencies and facilitates international dialogue on competition policy.

At our informal "brown bag" programs, members learn first hand about recent developments from senior agency officials, scholars, and experienced U.S. and international practitioners.

The Committee also publishes treatises on international antitrust, including Competition Laws Outside of the United States and Obtaining Evidence Abroad, and contributes to the international chapter of Antitrust Law Developments and its supplements. New publishing projects are in the works, and members with an interest in becoming further involved in Committee publications should contact us. In addition, the Committee supports Section initiatives to shape policy by submitting comments and analysis on policy initiatives, new antitrust laws, and proposed amendments to existing antitrust laws.
