This course aims at introducing you to EU competition law. No prior knowledge is required. 

At the end of this course, you should be familiar with the basic concepts of EU Competition law (such as relevant market, restriction of competition, abuse of a dominant position). You will know the principles underpinning this area of law and be able to analyse simple cases in light of competition rules. When presented with hypothetical facts, you should be able to identify i) whether there is a competition law concern, ii) whether EU competition rules apply, iii) if so, which substantive and procedural rules apply and iv) the main steps of the reasoning to be conducted; iv) if needed what factual questions need to be asked to take the analysis further; as well as vi) determine which EU or national authorities are competent for dealing with the matter. You will be able to research competition case law.
