Given the reality of global markets, modern antitrust law and legal practice are both global, as is any anticompetitive conduct they seek to regulate on global markets. This course thus teaches basic antitrust principles using cases and materials from throughout the world, with the focus on US and EC sources because those are the most active antitrust enforcers and have the most well developed antitrust doctrines.

The book will be ELHAUGE & GERADIN, GLOBAL ANTITRUST LAW & ECONOMICS (Foundation Press 3d ed. 2018).

Note: Students who have taken U.S. Antitrust Law may not take this course because it duplicates the U.S. portion of the material covered in Global Antitrust Law.

Subject Areas: Regulatory Law, Business Organization, Commercial Law, and Finance, International, Comparative & Foreign Law
