European and International Competition Law

How has Competition Law spread internationally and developed at such a swift pace? And how does the EU model of competition law compare with those in the UK and US?

This module examines key questions on contemporary competition law, a fast-moving and unpredictable area of law. As a result, the material that we cover may change in order to track the prevailing issues and latest developments.

However, the starting point of your studies is EU competition law - the leading model for the development of competition regimes at a global level.

This will promote comparative discussion about parallel developments in the US and UK. You will also examine antitrust prohibitions, which control market power and cartels, and merger control.

Your study will be guided by research-active academics who remain close to relevant cases regarding competition law in the EU and globally. The module is delivered via regular seminars, which link to independent reading.
