State Attorneys General are among the nation’s most important antitrust and competition enforcers, and they are frequently called upon to address matters that pose unique impacts on local and state economies. The AGEP Workshop on the Economics of Antitrust and Competition Law helped staff lawyers in state attorneys general offices improve their understanding of competition economics and provide special insights on issues of particular relevance to state and local government. Participants heard from distinguished antitrust faculty and leading academic researchers on the foundations of antitrust economics and emerging issues in state antitrust enforcement. Participants also attended the George Mason Law Review Twenty-Third Annual Antitrust Symposium which featured panel discussions that explored competing visions of antitrust enforcement at the state, federal and international levels.
