International Antitrust Law Committee

About the Committee

The International Antitrust Law Committee serves as an international network of antitrust practitioners and officials, along with others interested in antitrust law. Our members hail from many jurisdictions, including both those with established antitrust agencies and those just developing their regime. Through programs, publications, projects and policy letters to competition agencies, the committee provides a unique forum for practitioners and others interested in antitrust to (1) learn about legal developments around the world as they happen, (2) influence international competition law and policy, and (3) connect with an interesting and fun group of professionals from all corners of the globe.

Please also join our ongoing online discussion on the Committee's Linkedin page.

All the best,
