An Introduction to Competition Law
This book is intended to serve as a first acquaintance with competition law and is written in particular for students who intend to study a foundation course in competition law. This second edition has been fully updated in the light of the latest developments and covers both EU and UK competition along with an abbreviated introduction to the EU rules on State Aid. An important function of this book is to provide an insight into the combined system of UK and EU competition law. Therefore, for the three main subjects - the prohibition of cartels, the prohibition of the abuse of a position of dominance and the supervision of concentrations (ie mergers and acquisitions) - a range of examples, drawn from European and UK practice, have been provided. These are then used in the explanation of the general principles, taking into account recent legislative and judicial developments. With this approach, the book aims to reach a broad range of readers: students, teachers in further and higher education, officials and practising lawyers who are not usually faced with competition law issues in their working lives.
