Antitrust and Unfair Competition | L4070
The expansion of our economy over time has required the federal government and the courts to rethink their respective roles in regulating business conduct in the United States. The laws regulating business conduct are as dynamic as the notion of competition itself. This course teaches the history and fundamentals of antitrust and unfair competition laws in the United States. This course will discuss the competitive problems which arise from monopolization, price and supply agreements, tying arrangements, exclusive dealings, cartel activity and mergers. The course will also examine the interplay between federal, state and private enforcement of these laws.
