MGIMO University Organises Lectures by Samuel Hutchinson with Support of Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation

22 December 2015

A professor from the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation and the Higher School of Economics, Samuel Hutchinson, held a series of lectures in French at MGIMO University on the issues of competition law in December 2015. Master’s programme students studying the Law and students of the International Law Faculty attended the lectures.

The main issue for discussion was comparative analysis of the basic principles and provisions of competition law in France, the European Union and the United States. The lecturer, in particular, highlighted such issues as the origins and targets of French competition law and US antitrust law, the fight against anti-competitive behaviour, manifested in conspiracy and abuse of dominance. One of the lectures was devoted to analysing specific cases relating to this area of law.

The courses’ objectives included deepening the students’ theoretical knowledge and improving their linguistic and professional skills, and according to Samuel Hutchinson, this goal was 100 per cent achieved.

The project was made possible with support from the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation, a longstanding partner of MGIMO University.
