International Competition Law

 

 

DESCRIPTION

The objective of this course is to provide the students with an overview of the regulation that governs business practices in order to avoid restrictions of competition. After an introduction to the functions of competition law, the teaching will go over the concepts of market definition, the assessment of market power, the agreements that prevent, restrict, or distort competition, the abuse of a dominant position, the merger control procedure and the regulation of state aid. Though European Union Law will serve as a basis for the analysis, the necessary links and differences in relation to Swiss Law will also be assessed. In sum, this class will demonstrate how competition law can restrain anticompetitive activities and promote free competition.
