The French Association for the Study of Competition and the International League of Competition Law are pleased to invite you to Paris from 7 to 10 November 2019 for the LIDC’s annual congress.

We offer you scientific works/studies that will be significant and placed under the theme of innovation and the modernization of competition and intellectual property rights.
We have a separate examination, which is running in parallel, of the two issues entrusted to the recognised international rapporteurs. Organising separate reviews will strengthen the exchanges with the national rapporteurs and deepen the comparative approach of the modernisation topics discussed in both the competition and intellectual property law panels.
We welcome speakers of exceptional quality and great variety, since they represent both the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Commission, as well as national courts and competition authorities, but also economists, academics, in-house lawyers and private practice lawyers. They will thus provide a precise and in-depth insight into the evolution of competition law. 

But an LIDC Congress without friendship and enjoying our surroundings would not be a real congress!

This year, to celebrate the centenary of the Roaring Twenties, we will also enjoy relaxed and festive times with a conference about ‘the art market in Paris’ on Thursday evening in the lounge of the recently-renovated Lutetia hotel. On Friday, the reception at the Parliament will allow all participants to discover a place steeped in history and power. Saturday’s gala dinner will offer a variety of surprises: gastronomic, musical, and, above all, an exceptional guest.

We hope to see very many of you in Paris. Don’t wait to register and enjoy the special ‘early bird’ rates!
