Public Roundtable Discussion Series on Regulation & Antitrust Law

On March 14, April 26, and May 31, 2018, the Department of Justice Antitrust Division held a series of public roundtable discussions to explore the relationship between competition and regulation and its implications for antitrust enforcement policy.

The goal of the series of roundtables was to help the Department pursue effective and appropriate competition policy and identify related regulatory burdens on the American economy.

The roundtables provided a forum for industry participants, academics, think tanks, and other interested parties to discuss the economic and legal analyses of competition and deregulation. The Antitrust Division invited panelists from a variety of organizations, including the American Antitrust Institute, American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law, American Enterprise Institute, Association of Corporate Counsel, Business Roundtable, Cato Institute, Consumers Union, Federalist Society, Heritage Foundation, Open Markets Institute, Public Knowledge, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
