Event Brochure

Program Description: The Global Antitrust Institute (GAI) at the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law is a leading international platform for research and education that focuses on the legal and economic analysis of key antitrust issues confronting competition agencies and courts around the world.

The GAI was founded in the belief that if policy-makers, officials, judges and other relevant stakeholders in charge of developing and applying antitrust law, also known as competition law, understand economics, they will be more likely to make decisions that promote consumer welfare and innovation.

On September 23, 2014 the GAI will present a conference on Global Antitrust Challenges for the Pharmaceutical Industry in Washington, DC. The conference will feature panels focusing on competition policy and life-cycle management strategies, antitrust and reverse patent settlements, antitrust in pharmaceutical markets when the government is the consumer, rebates and tying, and merger control in the pharmaceutical industry. These panels will include some of the best known antitrust officials and practitioners working on pharmaceutical issues in North America and Europe. In addition, the conference highlights include a morning keynote address from Edith Ramirez, chairwoman of the US Federal Trade Commission and a lunch keynote address from John Pecman, Commissioner of Competition at the Competition Bureau Canada.
