Antitrust Spring Meeting 2020 Update

(68th Antitrust Spring Meeting, that is)


We have a SPECIAL GIFT for all who have supported the Section over the years and were excited to attend the 68th ABA Antitrust Spring Meeting in Washington, DC, in-person this year. The coronavirus is not going to keep us from sharing some of the best of Spring with current members and future members alike.

Since many of you cannot make it to Washington, we are going to deliver some of the best of the competition, consumer protection, and data privacy conference on the planet to you. VIRTUALLY – whether you are in your office, on an empty plane, in a hotel, or working from home. Yes, the 68th Section Spring Meeting will only be a few clicks away.

No masks. No elbow bumps. No social distancing required.

Starting on Friday, April 17:

  • ALL Spring Meeting course materials will be available on the Section’s ABA website FREE to all Section members. That’s right, for no charge you will receive a virtual encyclopedia of the most up to date CLE papers around, as submitted to supplement ’20 Spring Meeting sessions.
  • Each day and for each of the next 10 days, we will release at 7:00 am ET, a new Our Curious Amalgam© podcast episode featuring the “as-advertised” panelists and sessions from 10 specially-selected Spring Meeting panels. Like all Our Curious Amalgam episodes, these podcasts will be available on the ABA website and wherever podcasts are accessed, including iTunes, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
  • Each day at 12:00 noon ET, and for each of the next 8 days, we are planning on broadcasting specially-prepared VIDEOCAST of additional “as advertised” highly-anticipated sessions from Spring. Each video will be accompanied by links to the course materials that were prepared for that Spring session. These will likely run on the Our Curious Amalgam website
  • On Wednesday, April 22 from 12:00 noon-1:00 pm ET, we will LIVESTREAM our planned Spring Meeting lunch presentation GOING GREEN: THE SCIENCE BEHIND AND STRUCTURE OF THE NORTH AMERICA CANNABIS INDUSTRY. Join, hear, and ask questions of Jeff Chen, MD/MBA and Director of the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative, Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, UCLA. Sorry, you will have to supply your own dessert brownies.

Here are more details and a schedule.
