The Consumer Welfare Standard: Should It Be Attacked? Or Defended?


Craig Malam will speak at a webinar focused on the consumer welfare standard, and its potential impact on antitrust litigation and enforcement.

The consumer welfare standard has been a guiding principle for antitrust law and enforcement for over thirty years. Since its inception, has the standard benefited consumers, competition, and economic growth? Or has it led to increased market concentration and adverse outcomes for workers and small firms? Should the standard be modified or abandoned? What might the consequences be?

Dr. Malam will join antitrust attorneys to discuss these important questions and their potential impact on the future of antitrust litigation and enforcement.

This event is hosted by the California Lawyers Association’s Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section. For more information, visit the event website.
