Antitrust & Competition in a Global Economy
This course will examine the economic, philosophical and political forces that underpin the law of global capitalism in the 21st century. From an historical perspective, the course will review the rise of capitalism and the evolution of legal approaches to control it, under the common law, in the United States and beyond. In the present, the course will compare antitrust and competition law regimes around the world, from the US, to Europe and Japan, through focus on a case study of a global price fixing case and a global merger. Students will gain familiarity with US, EU and other competition law regimes. Patricia Sullivan, an antitrust practitioner for over 30 years, will teach this course.
