Course Description
Antitrust is concerned with how firms compete in the marketplace. Our antitrust laws are incredibly broad in scope. They apply across a huge swath of the economy—antitrust cases have involved everything from Silicon Valley tech giants to local retailers, from the legal profession to amateur sports, hospitals, and much, much more. Through this broad lens, the study of antitrust allows us to better understand how modern political economies function and why businesses (large and small) behave the way they do.
