Course description

Postgraduate Diploma in Economics for Competition Law

This programme is aimed at competition lawyers, both in-house and in private practice, and economists who may be new to competition law. Completing this rigorous programme will give you an edge in a competitive job market.

The programme aims to provide you with an understanding of the increasingly important role that economics plays in competition law and an understanding of when economic analysis is relevant to a particular competition law case.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Competition lawyers will be aware of the importance that economic evidence and analysis plays in cases brought before the European Commission, national competition authorities and the courts.

This programme has been specifically designed for lawyers in private practice, in-house legal advisers, representatives from the national competition authorities and the European Commission.

Training Course Content

  • The first unit covers the conceptual foundations of economics as applied to competition law.
  • The next two units cover the basic building blocks of economic analysis in competition law: market power and market definition. Units four to five look at economic issues that arise under Article 102, whilst units six and seven deal with Article 101.
  • These are followed by one unit on network effects and the boundaries of competition and intellectual property law, two units on mergers, one on state aid and one on empirical analysis.
