  • Dr. Heinrich Kühnert M.Jur. (Dorda)

"I am very pleased that I have been invited to the Cartel Law Moot Court organized by the Austrian Federal Competition Authority. I have seen a lot of interest, passion and enthusiasm among the students," said Director General of the DG Competition Mr. Laitenberger, who gave the closing speech.

All students presented a deep understanding for cartel law and sensitivity for economic analysis. The underlying case concerned anti-competitive behaviour in the field of software development, more precisely in the field of apps for mobile games.

The jury based its decision on the students' ability to present a profound legal and fact analysis, techniques in argumentation and rhetoric, the time management in the oral hearing and team work.

The Cartel Law Moot Court will be held again in 2018.
