Global Competition Law and Policy
LL.M Seminar 726 (cross-listed) | 2 credit hours
This seminar will examine the development of antitrust law around the world, starting with a basic understanding of U.S. and EC competition principles and then reviewing the application of those principles in developing and transition economies including China, India, South Africa and Latin America. Particular emphasis will be on merger control and regulation of dominant firm conduct (monopolization/abuse of dominant position). We will also consider the role of competition policy in economic and political development generally. Grading will be based on a paper and an assessment of class participation.
Prerequisite for J.D. students: Antitrust Law or Antitrust Economics and Law. It is recommended that LL.M. students have some previous work experience or coursework in U.S. antitrust law or competition regulation in other jurisdictions.
