The Present and Future of Behavioral Antitrust

Location: UCL Faculty of Laws, London

The Notre Dame Research Program on Law and Market Behavior with the UCL Centre for Law, Economics and Society are holding a conference on The Present and Future of Behavioral Antitrust.

Behavioral antitrust—the application to antitrust analysis of empirical evidence of common deviations of human behavior from strict rationality—is increasingly popular and hotly debated by competition law scholars and the enforcement agencies in the U.K, the EU more generally, and the U.S. alike. This timely conference will bring together leading experts in the field to examine the state-of-the-art of the behavioral approach to competition law and policy and to consider its future potential and limitations as an antitrust methodology.

Speakers include:
• The Hon Mr Justice Barling (President, Competition Appeal Tribunal)
• Dr Amelia Fletcher (OFT)
• Dr Andrea Coscelli (OFCOM)
• Dr Cristina Caffarra (CRA)
• Dr Peter Davies (Compass Lexecon)
• Paolo Siciliani (Chief Economist, BBC Trust)
• Prof. Christopher Leslie (University of California at Irvine School of Law)
• Prof. Maurice Stucke (University of Tennessee School of Law)
• David Saunders or representative (UK Competition Commission) (TBC)
• Prof. Avishalom Tor (Notre Dame Law School)
• Dr Ioannis Lianos (UCL)
