5 - 6 October 2017
etc.venues Moorgate, Bonhill House, London EC2A 4BX
Do you have a good background in microeconomics but want to learn more about practical competition policy?
Now in its fourth year this highly successful course is aimed at those who are relatively new to competition policy. Delivered by experienced practitioners from both the private and public sector, this two-day course will provide you with an in-depth introduction to the economic analysis involved in competition law and how it fits into the legal framework.
The focus is on the core elements of standard antitrust, including the assessment of anti-competitive agreements, mergers and abuse of dominance and each of the eight sessions will involve a mix of presentation and interactive work to provide you with practical analytical tools for use back in the workplace.
