The fourth edition of the Summer School will take place in Moena (Italian Dolomites) from 17th to 24th June 2018.
The Summer School is organized by the Osservatorio Permanente sull'Applicazione delle Regole di Concorrenza based at the Faculty of Law of Trento University ("Osservatorio Antitrust”). It is co-directed by Gian Antonio Benacchio and Michele Carpagnano. The Summer School offers a unique opportunity to analyze and study EU Competition Law and Economics at an advanced level. The advanced course combines academic studies with a pragmatic approach to the application of competition rules.
The academic program is designed to cover both substantive and procedural aspects of EU Competition Law with practical sessions and how to do sessions (Antritrust compliance program, mock dawn-raids, mock trial before the General Court, and Moot Court on Competition litigation). There will also be a plein air lesson held by Professor Emeritus Richard Whish and a keynote speech held by Professor Frederic Jenny. Moreover, four cocktail-talks will focus on: i) bid-rigging as a new Competition enforcement trend; ii) new protectionism and its impact on Competition Law enforcement in the EU; iii) digital economy and Competition Law; and iv) Brexit. A new feature of the fourth edition will be the Moot Court on Competition litigation, in which participants will be engaged in a simulation on Competition litigation with leading experts from Academia, Competition Authorities and Business community.
