Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course description:
• This seminar is for master students and covers selected topics in competition law and economics. We discuss economic and legal methods applied in antitrust cases in respect to market definition, assessment of market power, evaluation of mergers and calculation of cartel damages.
• Students will present related competition cases and write a term paper. A particular emphasis is put on the interplay of economics and legal analysis and the discussion and presentation of cases. By presenting case studies, students will learn how to apply the legal and economic methods to real world situations.

Topics
• Market definition and assessment of market power
• Collusion and horizontal agreements
• Horizontal mergers
• Vertical restraints and vertical mergers
• Predation, monopolization and other abusive practices
