University of Cambridge

Dr. Okeoghene Odudu is a lecturer in law at the University of Cambridge (2006 - Present). Dr Odudu’s research interests lie in the area of competition law. He has been particularly keen to consider the purpose, meaning, and operation of what is now Article 101 TFEU, which is the subject of his monograph, The Boundaries of EC Competition Law: The Scope of Article 81 (OUP 2006). His current research focuses on the relationship between the market and the State. At present he is working on ideas of "competitive neutrality", examining the ability to apply competition law to State owned and State funded service providers, focusing on the National Health Service in England. He is also interested in the enforceability of competition law and the relationship between the substantive rules and procedures for enforcement.
