2017 OECD GLOBAL FORUM ON COMPETITION DISCUSSES JUDICIAL PERSPECTIVES ON COMPETITION LAW

‌Competition cases are often characterised by complex litigation and differing sets of economic evidence.  Compounding these difficulties, judges may also face the prospect of overturning decisions from a competition agency with vast resources and expertise that may exceed their own.

In December 2017, the Global Forum on Competition  will hold a roundtable discussion to address various dimensions of the judicial adjudication of competition law. While recognising the differences that exist across jurisdictions, the discussion will try to elicit the main common challenges that judges face when applying competition law, and find ways to address those challenges.

Participants will be able to exchange views regarding the interaction between competition agencies and courts. Materials and more information will become available on this page.
