Could one create such a thing for law students?
Team A: FTC. Team B: merging parties.
Create and file HSR documents. Review HSR documents and create investigation plan. White paper submission. Second request. Papers for TRO/preliminary injunction.
The competition would start in late August, when everybody (acting as Team B) would work up their HSR documents. The interactive portion would take place over the December/January holiday period to approximate the realities of (1) a short time clock and (2) late-year filings.
Competition organizers would need to create mock deal documents and mock hearing transcripts.
The challenge would be to make it sufficiently interesting and realistic to be worth the candle.
Why? We all need more experiential opportunities for law students. And I want to increase the variety of antitrust offerings, at least here (but I imagine others have a similar interest).
