News and Views

Because the antitrust world is so fast paced, the Institute wanted to create a vehicle to comment on current events while they were still fresh. This section of the Institute web site will feature regular news summaries and commentaries from the Institute Director, student fellows, members of the United States and International advisory boards, and friends of the Institute which are shorter and more journalistic than the scholarly works in the working paper section. If you have an item that you would like to submit for consideration please email it to antitrust@luc.edu or swalle1@luc.edu.
