- Competition laws have been adopted by many countries, including the US, European Union and its member states, and recently China. The law impacts significantly on the ways in which companies, both large multinational corporations, and small and medium-sized enterprises, conduct themselves in the competitive environment.
- The programmes teaching team has considerable experience in the field. The programme leader, Professor Mark Furse, is an international expert on competition law in China and the Far East and Professor Rosa Greaves has very extensive experience in EU competition law.
