LAW 4021

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2024-2025.

This course will examine issues that arise when a country attempts to implement and maintain a "competition policy" as a way of promoting economic growth and efficiency. The basic reading material will start with actual cases (most of them arising under U.S. antitrust law), and use those cases to probe the legal, economic and broad policy issues that the cases raise.

When Offered Fall.

Permission Note Enrollment limited to: undergrads.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ECON 1110 or its equivalent.

Comments This course requires no legal training or background. By the end of the course, students should be able to apply economic analysis to business conduct to determine whether the conduct is or should be unlawful under the antitrust laws, if those laws are applied using an economic framework.
