A cutting-edge, front-page headline area of law, antitrust touches all aspects of business conduct, from mergers to commercial contracts to corporate structure, dominant firms, and even criminal conspiracies.  This course, taught by leading antitrust practitioners with both government and private sector experience, explains how antitrust law is shaping our current business environment, and how to work with antitrust issues in practice.  Students will learn how to analyze legal, economic and policy issues under the Sherman Act, Clayton Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, state antitrust laws, and leading case law.  In addition to our faculty of UF alumni from Washington DC, Tallahassee and Gainesville, the course will feature guest speakers with recent involvement in some of the most prominent antitrust cases in the world.
