                                                  dEAR COLLEAGUE,
                                                  When as a first year associate I told the senior antitrust
                                                  partner in our firm that I was interested in becoming an
                                                  antitrust lawyer, he told me that one cannot be a serious
                                                  antitrust attorney without attending the Spring Meeting
                                                  of the ABA Section of Antitrust Law. He was right.
                                                  Throughout the many changes that have impacted the
                                                  practice of antitrust law over the years, the Spring Meeting
                                                  has remained among the very best ways to stay on the
                                                  cutting edge. Therefore, on behalf of the ABA Section
                                                  of Antitrust Law, I am delighted to invite you to attend the
                                                  2009 Spring Meeting, the largest gathering of competition
                                                  lawyers and economists in the world.

                    These are times of change for all of us who practice antitrust law, with both a new
                    Administration and economic turmoil around the world. This year’s Spring Meeting will
                    focus on how antitrust and consumer protection law is (and is not) changing, with over
                    40 sessions covering all aspects of U.S. antitrust law, as well as providing substantial
                    coverage of consumer protection law and non-U.S. competition law issues. There is
                    no other conference where you can learn about the substantive law developments
                    and the practical skills of handling antitrust risk in the current environment, and, at the
                    same time, discover what the enforcers have in mind for the future.

                    In addition to the range of programming, the Spring Meeting will offer multiple
                    opportunities to focus on the following particular practice areas:

                    INTERNATIONAL TRACK
                    We will offer an “international track,” which means that there will be sessions of
                    international interest in every programming slot over three days, including competition
                    law and policy developments in China, Japan and Korea; treatment of standard setting
                    issues in multiple jurisdictions; the basics of E.C. competition law; and practical
                    perspectives in handling an international antitrust case. Through a special initiative
                    of the Section, we invited and welcome competition officials from countries with
                    more recent competitive regimes. The Spring Meeting has become the center of
                    major international discourse on competition issues, and we invite and welcome your
                    participation in the global “antitrust conversation.”

                    LITIGATION TRACK
                    We again will offer a “litigation track” so that you can immerse yourself in litigation-
                    related antitrust programming for three days. The Mock Trial program is always a
                    highlight for the litigators. This year the focus of the mock trial will be on defining a
                    relevant market. We will also feature sessions on private damages litigation around
                    the world, resources for class action litigation, electronic discovery, and litigation
                    management.

CONSUMER pROTECTION SESSIONS
Attorneys and economists interested in consumer protection issues will be able to
participate in a number of significant and sophisticated sessions on the development
of the falsity standard in recent advertising cases, consumer perception research,
privacy and information security, and other growing areas of consumer protection
practice in the United States and around the world.

ANTITRUST pOLICY ANd CASE RETROSpECTIVES
The Chair’s Showcase will feature the views of leading thinkers as to where antitrust
and competition are and should be heading in light of a new Administration and a
changing and uncertain economy.

In addition to the Chair’s Showcase program, a number of other sessions will provide
an opportunity to look back at a number of key antitrust policies and seminal cases.
For example, the 15th anniversary of the Daubert decision will be reviewed with
respect to its impact on economic evidence. Another program will confront the issue
of whether it is time to revisit the 1992 Merger Guidelines. The AALS Scholars’
Showcase will feature antitrust professors discussing emerging antitrust regimes.

Another panel will consider “Market Failures and Market Manipulation,” focusing on
how antitrust and consumer protection will address, and be impacted by, the recent
economic turmoil.

The Antitrust Section benefits enormously from the contributions of government
officials, scholars, and practitioners from throughout the world. U.S. Federal Trade
Commissioners and Bureau directors, senior officials of the U.S. department of Justice
Antitrust division, distinguished judges, heads of numerous antitrust enforcement
agencies around the world, and many distinguished practitioners, economists and
scholars have agreed to participate in the Spring Meeting. Collectively, they add luster
and excitement to the Spring Meeting, and we are deeply grateful for their participation.

The contributions of our Section leadership and members in organizing this program
must also be acknowledged. Under the leadership of program Officer Chris Hockett
and Spring Meeting Co-Chairs Roxann Henry and Bill MacLeod, literally hundreds of
people have been involved in planning sessions and preparing course materials. It is
thanks to their efforts that the Spring Meeting programming is so diverse and valuable.

On behalf of the Antitrust Section, please accept my enthusiastic invitation to come
and participate in the wide variety of CLE sessions and events that the Spring Meeting
offers. I look forward to seeing you at the Spring Meeting.

                                                                        Sincerely,

FTC’S SECTION 5 HEARINGS: NEW STANdARdS FOR
UNILATERAL CONdUCT?
Presented by the Communications Industry, Computer Industry & Internet, Federal
Civil Enforcement, Intellectual Property, and Unilateral Conduct Committees
Recent cases, official speeches, and an agency workshop on Section 5 powers have
focused new attention on the scope of the FTC’s authority to declare competition
unfair. Will the agency bring more cases like In re n-Data, which imposed an order
without alleging liability under the Sherman Act? How broad is the reach of Section
5, and can it be harmonized with international antitrust standards? This session will
address these and related questions.

                             Antitrust victims seeking damages are an increasingly important force across the
                             global antitrust landscape. From the perspective of experiences and developments in
                             the EU, Canada and the U.S., this panel will provide a comparative analysis of private
                             actions in antitrust enforcement and the rise of antitrust damages.

Is a supplier’s purchase of detailed pOS data an unlawful discrimination or an arm’s-

reseller’s Web site a form of advertising, or a slotting or promotional allowance? Can
one “advertise” in a customer-created newsletter sent to the customer’s mailing list?

                             Fifteen years ago, the Daubert decision changed the way that courts approached
                             experts. Since then, challenges to economic testimony in antitrust cases have become
                             common. This panel will discuss how Daubert challenges have treated economists in
                             antitrust cases, what leads to exclusion, how to survive a challenge, whether the cases
                             show trends favoring defendants’ or plaintiffs’ economists, and, if so, why.

FROM ANTITRUST INVESTIGATIONS TO CONSUMER
pROTECTION pROSECUTIONS: USING STATE CONSUMER
LAWS TO BRING ANTITRUST CASES
Presented by the Consumer Protection Committee
The AGs in Connecticut, Illinois, and New York investigated insurance brokers and
carriers for bid-rigging and price-fixing in violation of state antitrust laws—actions
ultimately claiming billions of dollars in restitution and civil penalties. Yet, many of
the cases were driven by, and ultimately resolved under, state unfair/deceptive trade
practice statutes. This panel will explore the transformation of antitrust cases and
assess whether they represent an emerging trend.

                             Presented by the Civil Practice and Exemptions & Immunities Committees
                             Widely described as one of the most confusing and poorly written antitrust statutes,
                             the FTAIA determines whether U.S. laws apply to conduct elsewhere. This statute has
                             taken on added significance in recent years as plaintiffs increasingly seek recovery
                             for antitrust violations on a global basis and expose defendants to potential record-
                             breaking damages awards. Yet, there is little guidance to understand this statute,
                             and practitioners and judges alike struggle to interpret its meaning and application to
                             specific cases. The panel will decipher the FTAIA and make sense of recent cases.

                             In the current climate of fiscal oversight, auditors are demanding a thorough review
                             of all aspects of potential corporate liability. The SEC wants disclosure of the

                             civil liability. Yet, these disclosures can waive privileges and conflict with vigorous

                             can be daunting. This panel will assess whether the analysis of competitive effects of
                             conduct should be adjusted to take account of two-sided markets. Can the dOJ/FTC
                             Merger Guidelines be applied in these markets? Are there differences between U.S.
                             and international regulatory authorities, and, if so, what can be gleaned from those
                             differences? does the analysis of two-sided markets vary with the industry?

HEALTH-CARE MERGERS ANd COLLABORATION: IS ENFORCEMENT
KEEpING pACE WITH A CHANGING SECTOR?
Presented by the Health Care & Pharmaceuticals Committee
Over the last decade, there has been continued M&A activity among health plans
and joint ventures among providers. Most recently, United Healthcare acquired Sierra
Health, resulting in a dOJ consent order, and the FTC is re-examining its policy on
provider collaboration. What forms of relief are sufficient to protect competition in these
matters? What trends are likely to emerge regarding M&A activity and enforcement in
these markets under a new administration? This panel will address these questions and
consider the antitrust implications of proposals to reform health care.

While some U.S. courts have substantially loosened restrictions on tying, exclusive
dealing, loyalty discounts and bundling, these non-price vertical restraints face serious
scrutiny in Europe and elsewhere. Why are there different approaches, and how does
a seller with international operations deal with these differing regulatory approaches?

                             Standard setting continues to offer great consumer benefits while sometimes drawing the
                             sting of substantial antitrust enforcement. Significant cases relating to the rights of patent
                             holders and standard-setting organizations are being decided on both sides of the Atlantic.
                             This panel will examine the similarities and differences in patent regimes and related
                             antitrust doctrine as determined by the U.S. and EU enforcement authorities and courts.

                             Recent RICO decisions have exposed single manufacturers to RICO violations. The
                             manufacturer is alleged to be utilizing its own network of independent dealers as a
                             RICO “enterprise.” The panel will discuss strategies for both plaintiff and defense
                             counsel in advancing and defending against such claims.

                             today’s environment, it is common to see parallel investigations leading to charges
                             of different crimes by different branches of enforcement, including multidisciplinary
                             department of Justice task forces and teams. These parallel proceedings can include

BOUNTIES & LENIENCY
Presented by the Cartel & Criminal Practice, Compliance & Ethics, and Corporate
Counseling Committees
despite the attraction of leniency from the enforcers, corporations continue to have
difficulty persuading employees to disclose illegal conduct. Can a leniency program that
guarantees continued employment and benefits provide incentive to self-report? Should
employees be offered cash bounties for reporting the conduct of co-workers or finding
claims against suppliers? Can surprise audits bring covert conduct to the surface?
How can the company spot collusion among suppliers? The panel will discuss creative
options a company should consider to enhance detection of antitrust violations.

                              Remedy is the ultimate issue in any enforcement action. The dOJ and FTC have
                              various remedial tools including injunctions, civil penalties, disgorgement, and
                              restitution. How do they choose from among these tools? Which are most effective?
                              How can parties, complaints, and customers influence the agency’s remedy decision?
                              This panel will also address differences between the approaches taken to remedies by
                              the FTC and dOJ, especially in merger cases.

                              Courts in different countries apply varying standards in evaluating economic analysis
                              in antitrust cases. Examples of different approaches include In re Graphics Processing
                              Units Antitrust Litig., Courage v. Crehan, and Berliner Transportation II. This panel will
                              discuss which standards have been and should be applied on issues ranging from the

                              Presented by the Mergers & Acquisitions Committee
                              does the increasing divergence from the analytical structure of the 1992 Horizontal
                              Merger Guidelines signal a need for revision? The use of HHI thresholds, the methods
                              of market definition, and even the nature of the inquiry vary substantially in actual
                              practice from the contents of the Guidelines. Which topics, if any, should be reopened
                              and which left alone? After addressing these issues, the panel will encourage the
                              audience to propose topics for consideration in a re-examination of the Guidelines.

BREAKFAST BRIEFING WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ENFORCERS

Economic globalization has heightened the need for more uniform application of
competition principles. Organizations such as the International Competition Network

different legal systems and levels of economic development will discuss ways in which
those differences present unique challenges to the application of normative concepts
of competition law and economics.

                             related proceedings, can differ from one jurisdiction to another, and even conflict.

                             issues that arise in antitrust matters in the U.S. and foreign jurisdictions.

                             Services Committees
                             This session will explore economic crises from the perspectives of experts in antitrust,
                             economics, consumer protection, and financial markets. Was market failure the cause
                             of the credit and mortgage crisis, and if so, is more regulation or different enforcement
                             the answer? Would disclosure mandates, price regulations, or transaction restrictions
                             enhance market performance and stability? What role will antitrust law play in bailouts
                             and mergers in times of crisis?

pRACTICAL pERSpECTIVES IN HANdLING INTERNATIONAL
ANTITRUST CASES
Presented by the International Committee and the International Task Force
The world of antitrust can lead counsel into vastly different cultural contexts with
enforcement regimes accustomed to their own protocols. Counsel will provide
practical tips to those who find themselves handling an international merger, cartel
or conduct case, focusing on examples of key procedural, substantive, and cultural
differences of which practitioners should be aware

USE ANd ABUSE OF CONSUMER pERCEpTION RESEARCH
IN ANTITRUST ANd AdVERTISING CASES
Presented by the Consumer Protection and Trial Practice Committees
Surveys and consumer research come into play in most advertising cases and in many
antitrust matters. On the advertising side, consumer surveys can determine what
claims mean and how they are understood by consumers. In antitrust actions, market
definition can turn on this evidence. The scientific standards for this research tend to
be developed piecemeal through court and enforcement agency rulings. This panel will
discuss the relevant standards, the reliability of this evidence, and the techniques to
use it effectively.
