Course Objectives

The course discusses the U.S. and EU antitrust laws to elicit the economic and legal arguments that may be used to characterize agreements, monopolistic conduct and mergers as unlawful. In particular, after the analysis of some basic concepts common to the two jurisdictions, the course relies on the U.S. and EU case law and on main-stream economic theories to examine the conditions under which some business practices impair market functioning.
