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, the legal profession, amateur sports, hospitals and healthcare providers, franchise restaurant employees, and much, much more. Given its broad scope, 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. This course covers the three primary areas of modern antitrust enforcement: restraints of trade, monopolization, and anticompetitive mergers and acquisitions.
