Next Generation of Antitrust Scholars Conference 2016


New Delhi: American Bar association and the New York University (NYU) nominated an assistant professor at Haryana’s Jindal Global Law School. The professor has been selected to present his research at the renowned ‘2016 Next Generation of Antitrust Scholars Conference’, to be held in New York next month.

Professor Avirup Bose will present his research on ‘Institutional Design of India’s Competition Law’ as a discussant at the NYU School of Law on January 22, a university statement said on Monday.

Prof. Eleanor Fox, one of the most celebrated antitrust scholars of the world will be critiquing Prof. Bose’s research work.

He is the first Indian antitrust scholar who has been selected to represent his research at the conference.

“I am honoured to have been selected, especially being the first Indian to be on this prestigious list. There is a paucity of serious antitrust scholarship coming out of India and I am glad to make a small contribution,” Bose said.

The conference hosts the brightest young minds in the antitrust (competition law) scholarship marking out those who display a promise to be a part of the next generation of leading antitrust scholars.

Avirup holds law degrees from the National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata, and the Harvard Law School.(IANS)
