Upcoming Events

  1. Antitrust Day at UW Law
    When: Thursday, November 14, 2019, 12:30 – 1:20pm PST
    Where: William H. Gates Hall (LAW)
    Antitrust enforcement is a central issue in the today’s news and in the 2020 election campaign. The “big tech” companies are under scrutiny as never before, as some politicians and pundits call for their break up. Are we failing to enforce antitrust laws properly? Do we need new laws? What’s the goal of antitrust law?

    If you are interested in any aspect of business law, attendance should be a no-brainer.

    Interested in social policy? Ditto. And if you want free lunch…this is the best deal of the quarter! Hear practicing attorneys talk about antitrust enforcement, the practice of antitrust law in Seattle, and ask provocative questions.

    RSVP in SCS Online.
