  • Division: The Henry G. Manne Program on the Law and Economics

With the emergence of large multinational technology companies and innovative digital technologies such as the internet, the cloud, and mobile devices, antitrust regulators are under increasing pressure to address antitrust concerns from state, federal and international authorities. These pressures have come with new and competing visions for enforcement that challenge some of the bedrock principles of US antitrust law.

The George Mason Law Review’s Twenty-Third Annual Antitrust Symposium will explore the robust debate surrounding the direction of antitrust law. Panel discussions will evaluate the competing approaches to enforcement vs innovation between the EU and US, the diverging visions of enforcement between the FTC and the DOJ, the impact of competing state antitrust laws, and a discussion about what policy changes may be needed in the United States to address increasing fears of market concentration.
