The seminar will provide national judges with some experience in competition law and competition cases with an opportunity to catch up on recent cases involving EU competition law and will discuss how these cases can impact cases litigated before national courts. In the last few years there have been several important competition law judgments by the European Courts in both Articles 101 and 102 cases, including cases on the analytical framework in Article 101 cases, information exchanges, abuse of dominance, and standard setting in an IP context. There have also been important developments in the area of the private enforcement of competition law, which will have a tremendous impact on how such cases will be litigated before courts.
