General Information

Constant and close cooperation with practitioners is the key to training competitive specialists who meet the requirements of today's dynamic labour market. On 19 April 2024, within the framework of the student scientific clubs "Competition of the XXI Century" and "Synergy of Sectoral Markets", Oleksandr Nagorny, Chairman of the Ukrainian Bar Association's Competition Law Committee and counsel at Sayenko Kharenko, gave a guest lecture Mr. Nagorny was at the forefront of the institutionalisation of competition policy in our country, was among the co-authors of the Law of Ukraine "On Protection of Economic Competition", and for a long time held senior positions at the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine.

The lecturer outlined the areas of competition policy implementation in the light of the changes that have taken place since the entry into force of the Law of Ukraine "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Improving the Activities of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine", identified economic and legal issues of identifying violations of the legislation on protection of economic competition, and focused on the practice of procedural principles of antitrust activities. In his lecture, Mr Oleksandr paid special attention to strengthening the institutional capacity of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine in the context of the latest changes in the legal framework of our country. The students had an opportunity to analyse the effectiveness of the policy in the field of economic competition protection on the basis of specific cases considered by the competition authority of our country and implemented in the European Union.

A separate aspect of the lecture was Mr Oleksandr's proposals aimed at improving the legislation on economic competition protection in the context of Ukraine's European integration, improving the institutional design of the Antimonopoly Committee and enhancing its impact on stimulating economic development, modernising consumer protection mechanisms and preventing abuse of monopoly entities.

At the end of the lecture, the students had the opportunity to hear meaningful answers to a number of questions about the practice of implementing competition policy, the prospects for further strengthening the institutional capacity of the Antimonopoly Committee in the context of Ukraine's integration into the EU, and employment opportunities for SUTE students at Sayenko Kharenko, which has a reputation as a leading Ukrainian law firm.
