TFederal Trade Commission Hearinghe Federal Trade Commission will hold the 14th session of its Hearings Initiative with Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 12, 2019. This will conclude the FTC’s Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century.

The hearings will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Harper Center Hixson-Lied Auditorium, on the Creighton campus.

The morning session will include a series of roundtable discussions with State Attorneys General, or their senior staff, on consumer protection and antitrust enforcement and policy issues.

The first afternoon session will examine legal and economic considerations relevant to optimizing the Commission’s consumer protection remedies.

The second afternoon session will revisit Frank Easterbrook’s seminal article The Limits of Antitrust, 63 Tex. L. Rev. 1 (1984). Panelists will discuss whether and under what conditions error-cost considerations are an appropriate guide for antitrust policy and enforcement, and how and to what degree such considerations should influence the Commission’s case selection and advocacy agenda.

The agenda for the hearing can be found here.

The Commission is accepting final comments on all prior Hearing topics through 11:59pm on June 30, 2019; final comments can be submitted here.
