Competition Law Forum

Overview

The Competition Law Forum is a centre of excellence for European competition and antitrust policy and law at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law. It provides a forum in which the practical application of competition policy is considered by lawyers, economists, senior business managers, public servants, public affairs professionals, consumer bodies and other specialist practitioners. 

The Forum identifies areas requiring debate and analysis, and provides the required forum and experts, thereby contributing to policy initiatives. In doing so it also produces leading-edge applied research, analysis and recommendations on the content, methodologies and application of competition policy at all levels of governance - national, European and global.

In addition, with the impact of a Brexit, the Competition Law Forum will provide a forum for academics and practitioners to debate competition law issues related to Brexit. There are regular private meetings for Forum members.

The Forum Director is Dr Liza Lovdahl-Gormsen, a leading academic and practitioner in the field.  Liza's role at BIICL is to lead the Competition Law Forum, host events for its members and get the Forum involved in national and international competition policy debates and be engaged in competition law research.

Liza is a Non-Governmental Advisor to the International Competition Network, appointed by the UK Competition and Markets Authority. She is a member of the International Competition Network's (ICN) Unilateral Conduct Working Group and the Agency Effectiveness Working Group.
