STRT 621 - Spec Tpcs: Bus & Comp Policy
The competition (or antitrust) laws of the United States, European Union, China and more than 100 other jurisdictions create powerful regulatory constraints on business activity.  These laws have been enforced against many of the leading global companies – Microsoft, Intel, Google, Apple, AT&T, IBM, and numerous others – challenging a wide array of business conduct, ranging from mergers to pricing strategies to intellectual property arrangements to aftermarket strategies.  This course aims to provide the tools business leaders need to understand competition regulation and factor it into their business decisions.  The course will provide an overview of the fundamentals of competition law, economics and policy, including the broader political and economic factors that can influence how these laws are applied around the world.  We will then explore case studies that focus on key issues in greater depth.  For each case, students will examine the nature of the challenged business conduct or strategy; the basis for the regulatory challenge; the outcome of the case and the regulatory risks the case illustrates; and strategies that businesses might deploy to mitigate those risks while still advancing their business goals.  We will also discuss current policy issues, including how competition policy has factored into the domestic political debate before and after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and its role in international relationships such as those among the United States, European Union and China.  The course is taught by an antitrust lawyer for a global company who is also a former U.S. antitrust enforcer.
