This course covers the fundamentals of U.S. antitrust law (competition law) as well as its competing underlying legal and economic theories. Topics include: (i) horizontal restraints of trade among competitors such as cartels, oligopolies, joint ventures, and other cooperative activities; (ii) monopoly and dominant firm conduct; (iii) vertical restraints of trade between suppliers and customers such as resale price maintenance, territorial and customer restrictions, tying arrangements, exclusive dealing contracts, bundled and loyalty pricing; and (iv) mergers. Throughout, our focus will be on simultaneously mastering the core analytic tools of antitrust law and policy and situating the key debates they pose within their historical-ideological contexts.
