SummaryThe aims and objectives of the course are to impart to students an understanding of the ways in which the interests driving competition law and the regulation of innovation interact and often conflict. The purpose of this course is to understand these tensions and to evaluate a legal framework capable of enabling both regulatory spheres to co-exist. The course will use a number of case-studies in order to understand contemporary issues in competition law within innovative markets. Several seminars will also be co-taught by a Professor with expertise in applied economics and a range of outside expert speakers (e.g. high-level legal practitioners; government officials; industry advisers) will participate in the course.
