**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**

Competition laws are being adopted or revised by increasing numbers of states, feature prominently in regional association agreements, and have an extremely significant impact on global and local business.

The programme explores offered by the well-established US and EU regimes, which are being challenged by the emergence of China as a significant jurisdiction wielding considerable influence.

You will engage with the significant international debates about the role of competition law, the difficulties faced by companies complying with different laws, and the possibilities of convergence.

The programme’s teaching team has considerable experience in the field. The programme leader, Professor Mark Furse, is a recognised expert on competition law with a strong interest in the development of competition law. Dr Florence Thepot is an expert in the role which competition law plays in the digital and online economies. Both publish extensively, and maintain strong national and international links.

We offer excellent facilities including our dedicated School of Law library; our main University Library also contains our extensive collection of legal materials and official publications with full access to key databases of US, EU and Chinese materials.

**PROGRAMME STRUCTURE**

You are required to take at least three courses from the following list (plus one other) and to submit a dissertation as falling within the area. Courses are delivered through a blend of lectures and seminar style teaching.

**CAREER PROSPECTS**
The programme provides a thorough academic background in the area of competition law and policy. Competition law has been subject to a dramatic growth in recent years, and the need for properly qualified people has risen correspondingly. This is particularly the case in East Asia, but the trend is part of a wider one. Our graduates work in leading international law firms or prestigious domestic firms in a wide range of countries. Others are placed with regulators and competition agencies around the world, or work directly for industry and commerce.
