XL CLaSF Workshop on Competition Law Academic Scholarship – Critical Evaluation of and New Insights for Competition Law Enforcement and Policy-Making
Friday 22 September 2023
Strathclyde Law School / Strathclyde Centre for Antitrust Law and Empirical Study, Glasgow, Scotland, UK
In association with Dentons, Glasgow.
The Competition Law Scholars’ Forum was set up to foster academic interaction and debate on key aspects and themes of competition law and help to promote a sense of an academic community of competition law scholars by facilitating the presentation of research in a friendly and open environment, and consequently allow for contributions to wider developments in competition law and policy.
CLASF is now over 20 years old and in this 40th Clasf Workshop we want to celebrate and showcase the important contribution that competition law academics make to debates on competition law enforcement and policy. Accordingly, the key theme here is research recently or currently undertaken by academics which can help to make a significant contribution to our understanding of aspects of competition law and in particular which will engage with and contribute to recent, ongoing and future developments in competition law enforcement and policy-making.
Against this background the Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) 40th workshop invites contributions (abstract paper proposals from researchers, scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers) in relation to any issue within this wide subject. We welcome theoretical, economics-driven, practice-based, or policy-focused papers, and we are interested in receiving abstracts for papers which may be focused on perspectives or experience at national, regional (e.g. EU), or international levels, or a combination. We are planning a live, in-person event only.
The Workshop will consist of a mix of invited speakers and contributions chosen following this call for papers. Any person interested in being considered on the basis of the call for papers at the workshop is asked to contact Professor Barry Rodger at firstname.lastname@example.org. An abstract is required of approximately 500-1,000 words, to be submitted by no later than Monday 24th July 2023, and decisions on successful submissions will be taken by Friday 11th August 2023.
Submission of presentation/draft paper is also required a week prior to the workshop. Papers presented at the conference can be submitted to the Competition Law Review editorial board with a view to being published in the Review. Note that the Review is a fully refereed scholarly law journal: submission does not guarantee publication.
