Event Details

  • Date:
  • Division: The Judicial Education Program

The Economics Institute is designed for federal judges to build an understanding of the economic foundations of antitrust and competition law, and to illustrate how economic analysis is applied to current and emerging antitrust issues. There was no requirement of prior economics or antitrust knowledge.

The GAI Antitrust Economics Institute for Judges provided an in-depth study of current and developing antitrust issues. Participants were introduced to, and developed, the analytical toolkit required to analyze a variety of conduct under antitrust laws, including: horizontal and vertical mergers; market power; collusion; monopolization; issues specific to the digital economy including network effects and multi-sided platforms; intellectual property and antitrust; and evaluating economic and quantitative evidence.
