This course explores the regulation of marketplace competition by the antitrust laws. Students learn the tools and analytical techniques necessary for assessing the antitrust risks of corporate and individual behavior. Primary focus will be on U.S. Federal antitrust laws, but state laws and the international considerations as will also be briefly covered. Particular attention is paid to competition law and antitrust policy challenges arising in the information age economy. Since the U.S. Supreme Court is the most important interpreter of the antitrust laws, analyzing cases decided by the Court, and how the Court has changed its attitude over the years about certain business practices in response to developments in economic conditions, the political climate, or the Court's understanding of their effects on other businesses and the public, is a key focus. Students learn the tools and analytical techniques necessary to assess the antitrust risks of corporate and individual behavior.
