Antitrust Law

This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the federal antitrust laws dealing with restraints of trade, monopolization and mergers. We will examine the history of these laws and of their development in the courts; current doctrine and the legal and economic theories that underlie it; the analytical tools of the trade; and the sufficiency of economic efficiency as the measure of justice under the antitrust laws. Familiarity with economics is not a prerequisite.
