Fordham Competition Law Institute: Conference on International Antitrust Law
and Policy

We hope that the entire antitrust community is healthy and safe. Given New York City’s challenging position in this crisis, Fordham recently decided that it will not be hosting any in-person conferences through the end of 2020.

For 47 years, the Fordham Competition Law Institute has presented the annual International Antitrust Law and Policy Conference, which is widely recognized as one of the premier events in the field.

As a result, we at the Fordham Competition Law Institute—with the generous cooperation and help of our speakers, sponsors and supporters around the world—will be moving this year’s conference online. As of now the dates (October 7-9) will remain the same as will the basic program: we still plan to have live keynote speakers, excellent panels on the latest and most pressing topics as well as networking events. But we also plan to use this virtual opportunity for different formats, more ways to interact with speakers and panelists and to facilitate cutting edge networking opportunities for our sponsors and those attending virtually.

Please stay tuned for updated program content, revised sponsorship levels and adjusted attendance fees; all will be coming your way soon!

Again, please stay safe and healthy, and we hope to see you all—virtually—in October.
