Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

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

Assessment and permitted materials

Grading
• Students are required to do one (group) presentation of a case (35%), provide a written summary and discussion of the case (35%), and participate actively in class (30%).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

For each of three grading components (group presentation, written summary and discussion of the case, class participation), students can receive between 0 and 100 points. The final number of points is the weighted sum of the three components rounded to one digit. To receive a positive grade, the final number of points has then to be at least 50.1. The grade is 1 (2, 3, 4 and 5), if the final number of points is 87.6-100 (75.1-87.5, 62.6-75, 50.1-62.5 and 0-50).
