          A George Mason Law Review Symposium
          Antitrust in the Global Economy
          As the markets of the world increasingly merge, antitrust laws
  the United States and overseas are challenging the ability of companies
  do business.  Recent mergers of multinational corporations have
  demonstrated how international antitrust law can pit economic blocks
  against one another.  The United States government increasingly has
  demonstrated a desire to stretch the limits of its jurisdiction in
  antitrust criminal cases.  Can antitrust laws be harmonized or will they
  remain an impediment to the global economy?  Given the United States'
  antitrust policies, what is the extraterritorial reach of the American
  antitrust laws and how can they be utilized in the 21st century? The
  Second Annual George Mason Law Review Symposium will bring together
  leading practitioners and experts in the antitrust field to discuss
