TR 5:30PM - 7:55PM
This course meets during a special session:
(06/01/21 - 07/22/21)
The course, which is ordinarily taught in the fall semester, considers the basic principles of federal antitrust law, focusing on practices that are forbidden by the Sherman Act. It will examine the law of exclusionary practices by dominant firms ("monopolization" and attempt to monopolize), horizontal restraints (including price fixing, joint ventures, and other forms of collusion); and some elements of private enforcement. No previous knowledge of economics is assumed. To the extent time is available, the final sessions will be devoted to hot topics of current interest. A complimentary course, offered in the spring semester, focuses on mergers (horizontal and vertical), antitrust and intellectual property, and vertical restraints. The courses are not cumulative. Students may take either or both and in any sequence. In addition to the assigned book some materials will be distributed via Canvas.
