Just tell them you need to get to know the person first.

Okay, joke aside, you should google "antitrust outline."

Definitely also skim the trade press so you can talk about recent developments if needed (especially if you're going to be working with a particular industry). I don't know whether you're at a firm, but if so, check out Law360's Competition Law column. Read a few big firms' antitrust "year in review" pieces so you can pick up on major themes and trends.

Yeah not sure if this is an interview with a big firm, but I'd look into reading their end of the year report (if they post one) and look for anti-trust stuff or I vaguely remember getting an e-mail from bloomberg law during OCI that had a link to some firms' annual reports they give clients.

Actually, the right answer here is threefold:

1. If interviewing with a firm, then read the firm's work highlights.

2. Find the FTC's and DOJ-ATR's annual submitted budget requests to Congress. Those documents outline the agencies' major recent enforcement actions.

3. Find the FTC's and DOJ-ATR's news releases/scholarship pages. When the agencies have a topic they think is interesting or deserving of study, they'll often either (a) host a conference on the topic or (b) publish working papers on the topic. Because ATR (at least lit) is so agency-driven, those sources should give you a quick 35,000-foot view of the field's direction. Without requiring a dive into the ever-lengthening articles in the ATR LJ.

GCR and CompLaw360 are good resources.
