Innovative Competition Law and Economics Programme at King’s

Located in the heart of London, King’s College School of Law offers interdisciplinary law degrees looking at the developing legal field of competition and its related economics. In recent comments about the degree programmes, King’s law professor Richard Whish described the law school as '…a vibrant community of scholars, committed to advancing the understanding of what competition is and what it can achieve. Leading policy makers, practitioners and academics come to King’s, throughout the year, to address the most challenging questions about the theory and application of competition law and economics; making King’s an exciting place to learn about, think about, and contribute to this area. We hope you’ll join us here.'
