Can Existing Antitrust Laws Govern a 21st-Century Digital Economy?

MARCH 4, 2022

The University of Memphis Law Review will explore whether existing antitrust law is sufficient to govern a 21st-century digital economy. Modern antitrust law in the United States has developed from the original passage of the Sherman Act in 1890 to a system largely focused on protecting the competitive process and increasing consumer welfare. Is this approach adequate for the rapidly changing digital economy of the 21st-century, where some claim that companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are reminiscent of the oil and steel trusts which motivated the original passage of the Sherman Act?

CLE credit has been requested. Information on registration and potential for virtual format will be updated on this page as available. For more information contact Symposium editor, Lexie Haralson at ljhrlson@memphis.edu
