Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture gives an introduction to EC cartel law and the Commission's powers to enforce those rules (public enforcement). After a brief introduction on public enforcement of antitrust law in the US the lecture focuses on private enforcement through actions for damages. The latter are common place in the US but still rare in the EU Member States. We will discuss the current legal framework in the EU, based on jurisprudence and the recently adopted Directive 2014/104 on certain rules governing actions for damages under national law for infringements of the competition law provisions of the Member States and of the European Union. The course will elaborate on the differences between the US and the EU systems.
