Welcome to the Berkeley Global Antitrust Blog! This blog has been started by law students, legal professionals and academics who are currently studying at UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). We came together in the fall of 2011 for the joint purpose of promoting deeper transnational dialogue about competition law. Members of the blog hail from jurisdictions around the world, from the United States to Poland, from Mexico to Armenia, from Germany to South Korea. We are truly an international group of scholars.
The blog aims to create a platform for students, experts and professionals to write about recent developments in antitrust and competition law, with a particular emphasis in global and comparative topics.
This platform hopes to build on the great wealth of cross-jurisdictional knowledge and experience that its members and contributors possess. With an ever-increasing global economy, a growing consensus that antitrust laws promote sound competition, protect consumers and encourage innovation, we saw an opportunity to capitalize on the international draw and reputation of Berkeley Law to create a forum to discuss these topics.
Finally, this blog hopes to become a global networking tool where students, academics, professionals and other antitrust-enthusiasts can come together to discuss joint-ventures, co-authorship ideas, job opportunities and generally connect with one another on this important topic comprised of a relatively small niche of people spread throughout a very large world.
We hope you enjoy the content!
