The aim of this course is to allow students to acquire a deep understanding of certain key elements of competition law. A handful of issues are selected each year for discussion according to their relevance with the Commission’s enforcement agenda. These issues are then discussed in their various aspects: facts, legal reasoning, remedies and compatibility with prior case law and economic theory. These various questions are discussed with the students.
These last few years, the issues selected for discussion included topics such as:
- Article 102 TFUE enforcement Policy;
- the new Regulation on verticals; and,
- the sectorial inquiry on the pharmaceutical industry.
