Dear Reader,

Welcome to Columbia Antitrust Law and Economics Association’s blog. CALEA was established in March 2010 as the first student group in an Ivy League School solely dedicated to antitrust issues, by a group of Columbia Law School students.  The group was initially known as the Columbia International Antitrust Law Association or CIALA.

By using this blog, CALEA hopes to maintain an open dialogue among students, professors, alumni and practitioners interested in legal issues in connection with the study, practice and development of antitrust law both in the US and in other jurisdictions. We will post here our ideas and latest research findings on current issues in the field of antitrust law all over the world, in the hope of opening up discussions that will bring forth insights into these topics and relevant concerns. We will try to keep this blog as updated as possible. Your valuable comments and feedback are more than welcome. Please join our discussions by clicking ‘add a comment’ next to each entry.
