Summary

**Overview**
The LLM in Competition Law programme offers you the opportunity to study the application of competition law in relation to different business phenomena, ranging from anti-competitive agreements and abusive dominance to mergers. Competition law is an exciting and important area of law, particularly internationally and across the EU. You will also have an opportunity to explore the interface between competition law and related areas such as intellectual property rights and trade.

Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and in many cases professional experiences from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.
