WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2014 — The American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law and the International Bar Association will present the 10th International Cartel Workshop Feb. 19-21 in Rome.

The 2014 program will continue the workshop’s tradition of instruction by demonstration, with a faculty of more than 75 highly experienced attorneys taking attendees inside a hypothetical international cartel matter, from detection by government enforcers to the disposition of government prosecutions and private damage claims.
