Aims, contents and method of the course

The course deals with the enforcement of competition law in a twofold manner. On the one hand, it discusses the current EU-framework, the relevant case law and pertinent policy proposals and, on the other hand, it relates this competition-law specific policy approach to the general analysis of the respective topics (torts, criminal law, law enforcement, procedure).

The seminar is held in English.

This seminar aims at providing students with a research/literature-based analysis of advanced issues regarding the enforcement of competition law in the broad sense. The seminar also aims at increasing the students´ employability in economic consulting firms, in law firms, and in other specialized units (such as competition authorities) in the area of competition law.
