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.
