During Lord Gordon Slynn's period in office as the Advocate General at the European Court of Justice ("ECJ" or "Court") in Luxembourg, Lord Slynn delivered opinions in many significant cases covering the whole range of European Communities ("EC") competences, from cases concerning common agricultural policy and civil services to those concerned with the development of the common market and the interpretation of the substantive law of the European Community. Comments on Lord Slynn's opinions in cases concerning the substantive law of the internal market and on state aid cases have been published in other works. In this short Essay, the focus will be on five selected opinions delivered by Lord Slynn in the field of competition and antitrust law, namely the IBM, Pioneer, Hasselblad, Ford, and BAT cases.
