Centre for Competition Law (CCL)
Tamil Nadu National Law University has been selected as an Empaneled Institution (EI) by the Competition Commission of India (CCI) for the purpose of Competition Assessment (CA) exercise of legislations and policies. TNNLU was one among the four Universities across India to be empaneled by CCI for this work. This empanelment was done on 07th September 2017, as CCI was satisfied with the Sample Competition Assessments which we submitted on 31st July 2017 as part of the bidding process.
Pursuant to this, we here at TNNLU felt the need to set up the Centre for Competition Law (CCL) which was inaugurated on 7th February, 2018 in the presence of Hon’ble Justice Mr. Rajiv Shakhder- High Court of Judicature at Delhi, Hon’ble Justice Mr. T.S.Sivagnanam- High Court of Judicature at Madras, Senior Advocate Mr. P.H.Arvindh Pandian- Additional Advocate General for Government of Tamil Nadu and Mr. Manoj Pandey- IRS, Advisor (Law) to the Competition Commission of India.
