On Friday, April 17, 2009, antitrust scholars from Europe and North America met at the British Consulate in Cambridge, Massachusetts to discuss Antitrust and the Rule of Law. This meeting, co-sponsored by the Loyola University Chicago Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies and the Competition Law Forum (CLF) of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, was the third in the series of Antitrust Marathons. The roundtable discussion was convened to address a series of issue papers related to Antitrust and the Rule of Law from a comparative perspective. The discussion was based on a series of short issue papers about different aspects of the rule of law in both American antitrust law and EU competition law. This special symposium issue of the Loyola Consumer Law Review contains the full issue papers and an edited transcript of the roundtable discussion.
