Call for Student Papers: The 8th Annual NLSIR Symposium on Competition Law

The National Law School of India Review (NLSIR) is the flagship journal of the National Law School of India University, Bangalore. For more than 25 years, it has been at the forefront of legal scholarship on issues relevant to legal practitioners. As part of its increasing mandate this year, in association with Amarchand Mangaldas, it is organizing the 8th edition of its Annual Symposium on Competition Law. The Symposium seeks to engage with legal issues that have arisen in the decade-long competition law regime, especially over the past two years, and thus hopes to fill the lacunae in current analysis.

Towards this end, the NLSIR is pleased to call for Student Papers for the 8th Annual NLSIR Symposium on Competition Law. The students whose papers are selected will also get a chance to present them at the Symposium which is scheduled to be held on the 2-3rd of May, 2015 in Bangalore. The selected papers will also be published as part of Vol. 27(2) of our journal which will be a special issue on competition law.

The paper may be submitted on any one of the following themes:-

Session I: Section 3 and Determining Anti-Competitive Agreements
