On 26 Novembre 2008 the Competition Law Research Centre (Hungary) is going to organise its next lunchtime talk. After this week having Scott Crosby, the lawyer of Impala, here on ‘Third party oppositions to a notified and accepted merger in EU law’ , we are honoured to welcome Professor Jules Stuyck here for the next event. He is talking on ‘The Unfair Commercial Practices Directive and its Unexpected Consequences for National Laws’.

Jules Stuyck has long experience in EU law, both as attorney and as an academic (KU Leuven, RU Nijmegen, CEU, Université Panthéon-Assas Paris 2). He regularly assists private clients as well as European institutions before the ECJ and CFI. In the last ten years he argued more than 20 cases before the Community courts. He is the author of several books and editor of several journals.

Translating Whish, Competition Law, 6th Ed.

14 November, 2008

Now it seems final that the new edition of Richard Whish’s book is going to be translated to Hungarian. It will be a good contribution to the dynamically growing Hungarian literature on competition law.

Such ideas are always welcome. I very much like for example the book GÜNTHER HIRSCH et al., Competition Law: European Community Practice and Procedure, An Article-by-Article Commentary (Sweet & Maxwell, 2008), which was written mainly by German academics and practitioners in English.
