The American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section had to cancel the world’s largest antitrust and consumer protection conference (its 68th annual Spring Meeting) due to COVID-19, so it has repurposed the agenda into 36 free online programs via livestreams, podcasts, and videocasts as well as virtual receptions spread out over 15 days.
On April 17, conference co-chair Adam Biegel will participate in a livestream welcome session.
On April 22, Peter Swire will be speaking on a podcast of the panel “Big Data as an Antitrust Issue” alongside the head of the German competition authority and the Texas attorney general.
Deona Kalala is hosting the “Celebrating Section Diversity Virtual Reception” on April 23.
On April 24, Adam Biegel will be co-moderating a livestream version of the traditional Enforcers Roundtable program featuring the heads of the EU and Canadian competition authorities, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) chair, the head of the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division, and the head of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) antitrust task force.
On April 29, Matt Kent will be introducing the videocast release of the session “Where Do Vertically Integrated Digital Platforms End?”
