David Evans : Courses and Seminars
EU Competition Law and Economics
The seminar provides an introduction to interesting and cutting edge topics in antitrust economics using European competition law as the backdrop for applying and discussing this. European competition law and its application by the European Commission have evolved rapidly since around 2000. The seminar focuses on this modern period and the evolving use of economics in the Commission decisions and court judgments. It does not provide an introduction to black-letter EU competition law or a discussion of old cases. The seminar also covers Chinese antitrust law and cases as well. Their law, which went into force in 2008, is based on elements of EU and US law and there are already several important cases. Grade will be based on a final in-class examination and an optional paper (to receive 3 credits).
