Every October the Fordham Corporate Law Institute brings together leading figures from governmental organizations, leading international law firms and corporations and academia to examine and analyze the most important issues in international antitrust and trade policy of the United States, the EU and the world. This work is the most definitive and comprehensive annual analysis of international antitrust law and policy available anywhere. Each annual edition sets out to explore and analyze the areas of antitrust/competition law that have had the most impact in that year. Recent "hot topics" include antitrust enforcement in Asia, Latin America: competition enforcement in the areas of telecommunications, media and information technology. None of the chapters are merely descriptive, all raise questions of policy or discuss new developments and assess their significance and impact on antitrust and trade policy. All chapters, if necessary, are revised and updated before publication. As a result, the reader receives up-to-date practical tips and important analyses of difficult policy issues. The Annuals are an indispensable guide through the sea of international antitrust law.
The Fordham Corporate Law Proceedings are acknowledged as simply the most definitive US/EC annual analyses of antitrust/competition law published.

Praise for the Fordham Competition Law Series:
"... the predominant forum for discussion of leading edge international antitrust issues. Both the conference and the published volume of proceedings are eagerly awaited events on the annual antitrust calendar."
- A. Neil Campbell, Former Vice Chair of Committee C, (Antitrust and Trade Law) International Bar Association, and;
- J. William Rowley Former Chair of Committee C, (Antitrust and Trade Law) International
"This is the largest single source of information and analysis on Community (now European Union) antitrust law anywhere. ... Also, some of the older papers are still the best statement of the legal principles in certain areas, even if there is recent case law."
- Common Market Law Review
"The Panel discussions which come at the end of the articles on a given topic are not only a valuable source of information, but provide an insight into existing and potential future problems together with possible solutions."
- World Competition
