ISEL launched the Competition Law Forum in February 2008 to provide a regular forum for analysis, debate and discussion of Irish and EU competition law and policy. The forum provides an opportunity to participate in informal round-table discussions on developments in this constantly evolving area with Irish and international policy makers, practitioners and commentators.
The Competition Law Forum is organised by its own sub-committee. The Competition Law Forum sub-committee consists of Richard Ryan (Arthur Cox) (Chair), Maureen O’Neill (Mason Hayes & Curran) and Claire Waterson (William Fry).
Entry to Competition Law Forum events is free of charge to members. A fee is generally payable by non-members.
Recent events are set out below. Where provided, material from the forum is available for ISEL members to download.
