We aim to create a small academic community at the Oxford Law Faculty, to debate and share ideas relating to EU and UK competition policy and enforcement. We will also explore articles and other materials related to contemporary global issues in the theory and practice of competition laws, providing an informal setting to discuss personal challenges related to the member's research interests.
Each session will focus on one primary source material. As the discussion group is informal, prior reading, as well as participation in the group, is entirely optional. However, students who wish to attend must RSVP prior to each session (firstname.lastname@example.org) as the sessions will be capped at 20 students per session. Led by a different researcher in each meeting, the discussion groups will be an informal, non-graded opportunity for students to supplement their formal studies and engage with other young academics and senior staff members in an open environment.
The group meets once or twice each term in the Law Faculty or one of the nearby colleges. Prof. Ariel Ezrachi leads our group as a senior academic advisor, with local researchers Vassilios Copetinas, Liana Japaridze, Dr. Julian Nowag, Peter O'Loughlin, Ece Gizay Ban, Felix Pflucke, and Amit Zac. Current guest scholars include Prof. Sayako Takizawa and Sarah O'Keeffe. The group is open to all postgraduate students at the University of Oxford.
