Antitrust (20629). 4 units. This course will survey antitrust law, economics, and enforcement mechanisms. The course will cover price fixing and other collaborative endeavors among competitors, mergers and acquisitions, monopolization and dominant firm conduct, and distribution arrangements. While we will examine the seminal historical cases, much of what we will cover will be contemporary applications, including the eBooks price-fixing litigation, the Anheuser-Busch/Grupo Modelo beer merger, the Silicon Valley high-tech employee “no-poach” class action, and the Google monopolization investigation. In each case, we will examine what the companies (allegedly) did, why they did it, and whether the law does and should prohibit the companies’ conduct. There is no economics prerequisite for this course, but some interest in how companies operate will make the course more satisfying. Self-scheduled open book examination. W.D. Collins.
