ABOUT THIS COURSE
 
Competition Law is a specialization that candidates are usually offered at the postgraduate level. Under this law specializations candidates study and review agreements or practices that restrict free trading as well as competition between businesses. Competition Law also bans abusive behavior by any firm that dominates the market and also includes laws that supervise and negotiate mergers, acquisitions as well as joint ventures.
The main reason why Competition Laws are inculcated in any state/ country is to promote as well as maintain fair competition in markets. Competition Law can be broken into two categories – Antitrust and Merger Control.
Antitrust is further divided into two categories which are Anti-Competition which is the mainstay of Competition Law and it deals with anti-competition agreements that are made between companies. On the other hand, the second sub-category of Antitrust involves monitoring companies/ firms which hold a dominant position in the market. As part of this law, it is ensured that companies which have monopoly or hold a big market share do not abuse their position of advantage and therefore laws are made to make this possible.
