LAW - 699 International Competition Law


(3 hrs.)

The principal objective of the course is to provide students with a basic and reasonably broad overview of competition law and policy in a global setting and with the analytical tools, including a basic understanding of economics, necessary to identify and address antitrust law concerns. To achieve these goals, the course focuses principally on US and EU law and procedure. Laws of other jurisdictions, including Australia and Japan, are referenced where useful comparative lessons might be drawn. Time is also spent on jurisdictional issues and the increasingly important multilateral efforts to promote and harmonize competition law enforcement. The course does not require prior coursework in the area or an economics background.
