Research Interests

Angus MacCulloch's research interests lie primarily in Competition Law, particularly antitrust and enforcement issues, but he retains a wider interest in EU Law, Regulation, White Collar Crime, and IP.

The majority of his recent work focuses on the impact of the introduction of the UK's cartel offence and the wider global move towards the criminalisation of cartel activity. Cartels are seen as the 'supreme evil' of antitrust and there has been a strong focus on addressing damaging cartel activity in contemporary antitrust enforcement priorities. A number of jurisdictions have moved towards the use of criminal sanctions to deter cartel activity, with varying degrees of success. The research has examined the value of the adoption of criminal sanctions, the different type of criminal sanctions utilised in different jurisdictions, and the problems they have and will face in practice.

Angus MacCulloch's other work includes the interaction between competition law and human rights/due process during contentious competition law investigations, and the provisions in IP law which seek to protect copyright through technological measures, and their impact on the consumer of copyrighted material.

Angus MacCulloch also continues to publish a popular Competition Law textbook, Competition Law and Policy in the EC and UK, now in its 5th edition, and a Cases and Materials text. He is also one of the Editors of a popular new Journal the Competition Law Review, founded in 2004, which is an increasingly important home for competition law scholarship. He is a founding member of the Competition Law Scholars Forum and maintains the 'Who's Competing?' blog.
