With thanks to the authors, editors and other contributors, our Section is pleased to present you with another edition of Competition. A variety of articles and viewpoints are provided on important antitrust and unfair competition law topics. Our editor-in-chief, Heather Tewksbury, for whom special thanks is due, provides an overview of this edition in her Editor’s Column below.

In addition to publications, our Section promotes education via professional programs. Our flagship program is the Golden State Institute (GSI), a daylong conference followed by an evening event honoring the Antitrust Lawyer of the Year. This year’s GSI will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2015, at the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco, California.

Expect a top-notch program with leading plaintiff and defense practitioners, government enforcers, and state and federal judges serving as speakers and panelists. A highlight will be an insightful conversation with the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court Tani Cantil-Sakauye.

Following the panels, we will honor Craig Corbitt as our 2015 Antitrust Lawyer of the Year. Craig Corbitt has been an antitrust litigator for over 35 years. He has been centrally involved in dozens of the most significant civil antitrust cases in the United States during his career. He has represented class plaintiffs in the LCD Flat Panel, Natural Gas, De Beers, Microsoft, Smokeless Tobacco, and Brand Name Prescription Drugs cases among many others. Craig Corbitt is a former Chair of the California State Bar Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section, and is a Member of the Advisory Board of the American Antitrust Institute. We congratulate Craig.

Please join us for GSI 2015 and the award dinner honoring Craig on October 29th. It will be a special event, from start to finish. More information will be available in Section email updates and on the website,
