Antitrust Law Committee

Committee Description

The YLD Antitrust Law Committee is a substantive sub-committee of the YLD that provides lawyers (under 36 years old or admitted to practice for less than five years) and law students interested in antitrust law an opportunity to network, share ideas, discuss pressing issues, learn about the finer points of antitrust law, and access a number of ABA antitrust resources. Many of our programs are co-sponsored with the Section of Antitrust Law and we would encourage you to get actively involved in both the YLD Antitrust Law Committee and the Section.

News and Announcements

We hold various events every month, including telephonic brown bags, happy hours, and more. For up-to-date information on these events, please sign up for our listserve or visit our LinkedIn and Facebook pages.

Every two years, the ABA Section of Antitrust Law puts on the highly-regarded Masters Course—a conference directed at young but experienced associates, partners, and government and in-house attorneys to provide deeper insight into key antitrust principles. This is an unmatched training opportunity featuring a stellar line-up of senior antitrust practitioners in the public and private sectors. This year, the conference will take place on October 9-11 at the Colonial Williamsburg Lodge in Historic Williamsburg, VA.
