Course Description
Antitrust law is concerned with how firms compete in the marketplace. Given its broad focus on market competition, the study of antitrust allows us to better understand how modern economies function and why businesses (large and small) behave the way they do. Antitrust laws are also broad in scope. They apply across a huge swath of the economy, from Silicon Valley tech giants to local retailers. The primary categories of strategic conduct addressed in this course include monopolization, cartels, vertical distribution agreements, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures.
