The programme provides you with a unique opportunity to specialise in an increasingly important area of law. The laws of the EU and the US lie at the heart of this programme, but reference is made to the laws of many other jurisdictions.
- Competition laws have been adopted by many countries, including the US, European Union and its member states, and recently China.
- The law impacts significantly on the ways in which companies, both large multinational corporations, and small and medium-sized enterprises, conduct themselves in the competitive environment.
- The programme’s teaching team has considerable experience in the field. The programme leader, Professor Mark Furse, is an international expert on competition law in China and the Far East and Professor Rosa Greaves has very extensive experience in EU competition law.
- We offer excellent facilities including our dedicated School of Law library; our main University library also contains our extensive collection of legal materials and official publications and is a European Documentation Centre.
You will study three or four courses from the following list (one choice can come from other subject areas), and are required to submit a dissertation approved as falling within the area. Courses are delivered through a blend of lectures and seminar style teaching.
- Advanced Competition Law
- Competition Law: Substance and Enforcement
- Intellectual property law and the market
- International merger control.
Note: Some courses might not be available every year.
