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.
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.
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.
