"This Handbook helps association counsel and executives help to understand the antitrust issues associated with association activities and minimize their risk. It begins with a discussion of basic antitrust principles and the system of public and private remedies for violations, before turning to more detailed treatment of the analytical framework applicable to collaborative activities involving competitors. Subsequent chapters provide in-depth discussion of topics and problems that are routinely encountered by practitioners counseling trade associations, including membership criteria and expulsion, information collection and dissemination, industry codes of ethics, standards development, and joint petitioning of the government. his Handbook updates and expands substantially the Section's antitrust practice guide, published in 1996, entitled Antitrust & Trade Associations: How Trade Regulation Laws Apply to Trade and Professional Associations and serves as a general and accessible guide to the application of U.S. federal and state antitrust laws to the activities of trade and professional associations." - from the publisher
