Description

This book will equip students with a broad range of materials - case extracts, statutory extracts and relevant academic writings - to enable them to study and make sense of this fast-developing and often complex area of law. Every extract is fully explained and contextualized by the accessible linking commentary provided by the authors. Under the Competition Act 1998, EC jurisprudence has been introduced to UK competition law. This sourcebook provides the necessary resources of EC cases and legislation as well as UK resources in light of this development. Dealt with fully in this text are the core topics of Article 81 and 82, matters relating to Enforcement and Procedure, monopolies, State Aid and the issues surrounding Extraterritoriality. It also takes into account the Enterprise Bill 2002 which brings UK competition law closer to the example of the United States regime and ultimately will make the UK the strictest regime in Europe. Competition law has gained new significance in the UK and the EC in recent years and is now well established as an undergraduate course. The subject is heavily influenced by EC law and underpinned by economics, both difficult concepts for the law student. The cases and materials approach, providing the relevant background and context, is therefore very appropriate.show more
