8th Annual NLSIR Symposium on Competition Law

[The following announcement is posted on behalf of the National Law School of India Review]

The National Law School of India Review (NLSIR) – the flagship journal of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore is pleased to announce the VIII NLSIR Symposium on Competition Law scheduled to be held on May 2-3, 2015 at the International Training Center (NLSIU), Bangalore. Since the enactment of the Competition Act in 2002, the competition regime in India has witnessed several interesting developments. Despite the emergence of a vibrant jurisprudence, however, the law remains far from lucid. In light of this, the 8th NLSIR Symposium hopes to assess the development of the law and bring some clarity for practitioners and academics alike.

Day One focuses on the core aspects of anti-competitive agreements and abuse of dominance. Day Two focuses on emerging issues and the dialogue between competition law and other regimes.

Confirmed Speakers for the Symposium include Mr. P.K. Singh, Prof. Rahul Singh, Mr. Rajat Sethi, Mr. H.S. “Bobby” Chandhoke, Mr. Murali Neelkantan, Ms Vaishali Sharma, Mr. J Sai Deepak, Dr S.K. Murthy, Mr. Paramjeet Berwal, Mr Karan Singh Chandioke, Dr. K.D. Singh and Mr. Arjun Krishnan.

This year the discussion will be divided into four panels:

Session I: Section 3 and Determining Anti-Competitive Agreements (Forenoon, May 2, 2015)

Session II: The Abusive Conduct of Dominant Enterprises (Afternoon, May 2, 2015)

Session III: Mergers and Acquisitions: Clearing the CCI Hurdle and the Competition Between Regulators (Forenoon, May 3, 2015)

Session IV: The Interface of Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Law in India (Afternoon, May 3, 2015)
