    Fordham
    Competition Law Institute Course in Summer 2013


    The Fordham Competition Law Institute‚Äôs training center for antitrust/competition law officials, judges and policymakers is pleased to announce its course offering for 2013.  Since 2006, when FCLI started to offer summer courses, approximately 300 members of competition authorities and judges, representing more than 40 jurisdictions, have attended FCLI's workshops and courses.  We look forward to another year of programs where a deeply experienced and world-caliber faculty will discuss advanced topics in competition law and economics with diverse groups of participants from competition authorities and courts in jurisdictions around the world.

    If there are officials within your organization who are interested in attending the program described below, please provide them the information about the courses and/or send their name, a short resume, and application to Ms. Alice Wong at aalwong@law.fordham.edu Because space is limited, applications must be received by February 20, 2013.


    Course for competition authority economists, June 24 to 28,   FCLI will offer a one week course for economists from competition authorities, building on the success of previous economist courses.   Through discussion and practical examples, the course will enable competition economists to refresh their knowledge of key economic concepts, learn about recent developments in economic theory, and develop the skills needed in case work.  The course is open to competition authority economists with at least three years experience in an authority.  A PhD in economics is not required.

    A highly experienced, geographically diverse faculty from competition authorities, academia and the judiciary will lead the courses and workshop, taking an interactive approach and utilizing case studies.  Sample detailed agendas and application is available on the FCLI website at www.fordhamantitrust.com

    All programs will be held at Fordham Law School in New York City.  Limited financial assistance will be available to enable competition officials and judges from diverse backgrounds to attend.

    If you have any questions about the courses, please contact Ms. Alice Wong at  aalwong@law.fordham.edu

    Respectfully yours,

    Barry Hawk
