Interested in building a career in competition law? The CBA Young Lawyers Committee is hosting a half-day, CPD accredited conference tailored to young lawyers and Competition Bureau officers in their first 5-10 years of practice.

The conference topics will range from global trends in competition policy, to practical advice about building a profile and personal network. Please register today, and take advance of this unique opportunity to network with colleagues from both private and public practice.

Details and Registration

The James H. Bocking Memorial Award


The award consists of a monetary prize of $2,500, as well as a complimentary registration for the Section's Annual Fall Conference at which time the award will be presented. The Competition Bureau generously pays reasonable travel and accommodation expenses incurred by the recipient (or by one of the recipients in the case of a joint paper) in connection with his or her participation in the Conference at which the award is presented.

Criteria & Eligibility
The award is presented annually for the best scholarly paper submitted to the Section on a subject directly relating to Canadian competition law or policy. The papers should specifically address competition law and policy, rather than a more general law or economics topic. All full time students or lawyers within three years of their call to the Bar as of June 30, 2014, are eligible to enter. Only one award will be granted to the chosen paper, regardless of the number of authors, and all authors must meet the above eligibility criteria.
