Competition Law

Module code: LLBP 3052

Module description

Competition Law is an area where the European Commission has been active in harmonising Member States' laws in order to ensure the optimal working of the internal market. This module looks at the principle mechanisms designed to prevent undertakings from thwarting the free movement of goods and services through collusion, abuse of dominant position, mergers and unfair aid from the state. It will also consider how the law is enforced both nationally and by the European Commission. The differences between English and European Law will be considered.
