Competition Law has been experiencing a sort of renaissance. It's link to the growth of Big Tech has brought it into the public conscience and created a level of interest from lawyers and general society alike.

In recent years, the interplay between Competition Law and Data Privacy has proved to be a fascinating evolution in the competition space. Brought to a head during 2021's Epic Games v Apple case, we are beginning to see a privacy rationale being used as a shield against the accusation of anti-competitive behaviours. Both are legitimate interests, but what should take precedence? How are courts and organizations dealing with the uncertainty?

On Wednesday, January 25th, join the Future of Law Lab for a spirited discussion with Competition and Privacy Law experts Erika Douglas and Francesco Ducci, where we will explore how these substantive areas interact and how they might guide future policy, regulatory, and corproate actions. Moderated by the University of Toronto's Anthony Niblett, this is sure to be an excellent session for competition and privacy law practitioners, as well as anyone with a general interest in the legal ecosystem.
