Distinguished Guest Scholars

The GAI and the Global Antitrust Law & Economics LLM Program jointly established the Distinguished Guest Scholar Program to foster deeper connections between the world’s leading antitrust scholars and the GAI, as well as expand the growing community of academic and professional antitrust leaders.  Our Distinguished Guest Scholars are invited to present one seminar or lecture to our faculty, students, interested alumni, and local practitioners during their visit.  The hope of the GAI and the Global Antitrust Law & Economics LLM Program is that our Distinguished Guest Scholars exchange ideas with the GAI faculty, students, and the local antitrust community during their visit.
