Instructor(s) Carstensen, Peter
This course provides a survey of American antitrust law. The primary focus is on the Sherman Act and Clayton Act provisions regulating restraints of trade, monopoly, and merger. Attention is also given to the separate powers of the Federal Trade Commission and to the relationship of antitrust law to intellectual property rights. In addition, there will be some presentation of the antitrust law of other countries. Time permitting, there will also be a brief introduction of the Robinson-Patman Act.
