A Forum for Bridging Perspectives

The Future of Antitrust Series, an initiative of BYU Law School’s Global Business Law Program, fosters collaboration and constructive debate among a range of perspectives in contemporary antitrust law and policy. The series draws upon the research and practice experience of BYU Law School faculty and fellows, and it provides a forum for scholars, policymakers, and practitioners advancing the next generation of antitrust policy around the world. The series receives financial support from BYU Law School and Amazon.com, Inc. An unrestricted $500,000 grant from the latter provides funding for conferences and webinars, research fellows and assistants, proprietary data used for empirical research, and administrative costs. No content or programming created by BYU Law School faculty, staff, or affiliates is subject to third-party review or approval.
