Professor Barry Rodger a winner at 2023 Antitrust Writing Awards

Professor Barry Rodger has won an award at the 2023 Antitrust Writing Awards Annual Awards in Washington for an article about consumers and competition law. 

The Antitrust Writing Awards exists to promote competition scholarship and contribute to competition advocacy. 

Professor Rodger’s article “Let’s talk about consumers: competition law compensation for indirect purchasers’ losses – a United Kingdom perspective” was the winner in the category “Best Academic Article: Private Enforcement” 

Commenting on his success, Professor Rodger said:

I am obviously delighted as these are the most prestigious awards in competition law/antitrust scholarship and there were a number of great academics and articles in competition with my article. The Antitrust Law Journal is the leading US journal and to an extent this is reflected glory and thanks to them, notably Prof Gavil for their work on the ALJ special issue.

Professor Rodger’s role in developing competition law private enforcement scholarship has been further advanced recently by the publication of his co-edited (with F Marcos and M Sousa Ferro) Research Handbook on Private Enforcement of Competition Law in the EU, as detailed in our earlier news item. Applicants for the LLM in Competition Law at Strathclyde will get the opportunity to take a specialised private enforcement stream and study that topic as part of their LLM.
