Competition Law Institute

For more than 40 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.

Antitrust Economics Workshop

Wednesday, 21 September 2016
8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

The 2016 Conference began with a daylong antitrust economics workshop jointly sponsored by Charles River Associates and Cornerstone Research.

This interactive workshop combined role-play simulations, mini-lectures, and Q&A sessions to cover the critical issues practitioners need to know about hiring, preparing, and working with economic experts from the beginning of a case through trial.

The workshop featured economic experts and leading antitrust practitioners speaking on key topics:

  • Choosing and hiring an economic expert
  • Making sure the expert has the right staff support
  • Understanding the case: the intersection of law, facts, and economics
  • Working with the expert as s/he writes an expert report
  • Preparing the expert for deposition
  • Dealing with Daubert challenges
  • Prepping the expert for direct and cross examination
  • Preparing trial demonstratives
  • Succeeding at trial
