Golden State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Institute

The Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section hosts the Golden State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Institute (GSI) and Antitrust Lawyer of the Year Reception and Dinner in San Francisco each fall. This is the Section’s marquee event and brings together private and public sector attorneys, academics, experts, judges, and law students. GSI is an all-day conference that features programs on recent developments in antitrust and unfair competition law, big stakes antitrust trials, antitrust enforcement, and a judges panel, and offers at least five CLE credits. Following the conference is the Antitrust Lawyer of the Year Reception and Dinner. 

For more information on GSI, please contact Rob McNary ( or Aaron Sheanin (

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GSI conference was virtual, though it was a record-setting success. Over 300 attendees participated in our six programs and two networking receptions. The programs were:  

  • Recent Developments in Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law; 
  • A Conversation With California Supreme Court Justice Joshua P. Groban; 
  • Big Stakes Antitrust Trial: New York v. Deutche Telecom AG (S.D.N.Y.); 
  • Antitrust and Social Justice;
  • Cartel Enforcement; and  
  • A Conversation About Diversity, Racism, and Equality in the Legal Profession
