International Committee


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. The Committee keeps members informed about new laws, leading cases, enforcement trends, policy developments and agency staff changes through Committee-produced programs, newsletters, discussion list and Connect updates, and publications. The International Committee also participates in the Section's outreach to foreign enforcement agencies and facilitates international dialogue on competition policy. 

Through our committee programs, members learn first-hand about recent developments from senior agency officials, scholars, and experienced U.S. and international practitioners. 

The Committee participates in writing treatises and handbooks on international antitrust topics, such as Obtaining Discovery Abroad and the Section’s flagship publication Antitrust Law Developments, and has developed an online handbook concerning multijurisdictional investigative processes, which is available on our Committee webpage. Our newsletter, the International Antitrust Bulletin, is published quarterly and provides a one-stop-shop for antitrust developments around the world. In addition, the Committee helps shape policy by working with the International Task Force and other Committees to prepare comments and analyses of policy initiatives, and new antitrust laws and proposed amendments. 

Finally, the Committee participates in the Section’s efforts to expand its international outreach to foreign competition agencies and bar groups and provides an excellent forum for non-U.S. and U.S. competition, consumer protection and privacy lawyers alike to network.
