International Antitrust Law
Professor Dennis Davis
J.D. Course 629 (cross-listed) | 3 credit hours
Over the past three decades, more than a hundred countries have introduced antitrust / competition legislation. Much of this legislation has been sourced in the established legislative systems of the USA and the EU. This course examines the extent to which developing countries have adapted these models to their particular development needs. From this, the course seeks to determine possibilities of convergence of competition principles between developed and developing countries; in particular as to whether an overlapping consensus extends beyond cartel activity. Students will be invited to examine these questions not only through the prism of the USA and the EU but also India, China, South Africa, Brazil or other developing countries of their choice.
This course will not meet on Tuesday, January 19, 2016. The professor will schedule a makeup class at a later date.
