Hosted By: the Law & Economic Center at George Mason University School of Law and the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Antitrust Law

The Law & Economic Center at George Mason University School of Law and the ABA Section of Antitrust Law held a program on 6-9 October 2013 that focused on the latest economic developments in antitrust law and litigation. The program is part of the law school's nationally known judicial education program. On 8 October, NERA President Dr. Lawrence Wu participated in a panel discussion entitled "What Does Comcast Portend for Economic Evidence Concerning Impact, Both on Class Certification and on the Merits?" The panel discussed whether the Comcast Corp v. Behrend decision will change the way economists and courts assess impact and injury in the context of antitrust class certification. NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Lauren Stiroh also participated in the program as an expert witness during the mock trial of a Sherman Act case. The mock trial was the culminating event of the program and will take place before a live jury.
