Events and Programs
Throughout the year a number of symposia, lectures, and brown bag discussions are held on selected topics related to Antitrust and Consumer Law. The Institute also sponsors programs in conjunction with the bar association and law reform groups such as Citizen Works, the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association. All Institute events are available without charge to members of the Loyola University Chicago community. Full information and details on upcoming events as available on the Institute website.
The annual Loyola Antitrust Colloquium is held each April where professors, judges, enforcements officials, and practitioners gather for a day of discussion of cutting edge research in the antitrust field. The Institute also has sponsored symposia and round table discussions on a regular basis for the general legal and business community. Recent symposia have included the Future of Private Rights of Action in Antitrust (2004), Proof of Conspiracy in Antitrust Cases (2006), and Designing Better Institutions to Enforce Competition Law (2009). The papers for all symposia are published in either the Law Journal or the Consumer Law Review. The Institute also sponsors the Antitrust Marathon, a global roundtable discussion of comparative competition law issues. Antitrust Marathons have been held in Chicago, London, Boston, and Dublin and the papers and transcripts of the discussion have been published in the Loyola Consumer Law Review and the European Competition Journal.
The Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, working with its co-sponsor, the Institute for Investor Protection, recently hosted the National Mortgage Settlement Conference. The Conference featured presentations from the architects of the largest consumer protection settlement in American history, including State Attorneys General from throughout the country and Shaun Donovan, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. In his fascinating address, which is linked here, Secretary Donovan traces the abuses which led to the mortgage crisis, and documents the extremely effective efforts of state and federal agencies to provide relief for homeowners and to establish structures and standards to prevent such crises in the future. You can also view the Welcome and Introductions, Panel #1, Panel #2, and Panel #3 from the Conference.
