The institute is a two-day program that will address the economics and applications of antitrust law. The program will begin with the foundational aspects of economics and antitrust policy, including a review of supply and demand and a broad overview of competition and monopoly. The final day of the program will include the 17th Annual George Mason Law Review Symposium on Antitrust Law entitled, "The FTC: 100 Years of Antitrust Policy", which will examine the important role the Federal Trade Commission has played in shaping US antitrust policy since its inception in 1914. Symposium panels will examine mergers, the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property, the proper scope of Section 5 of the FTC Act, and the FTC's use of enforcement and advocacy to contend with state-imposed restraints on competition. All current FTC commissioners are scheduled to participate; the lunch program will include a moderated panel of former FTC chairmen.
