Keep up with what matters in competition and consumer law through the Institute’s website:

Working papers from the faculty and members of our Advisory Board

News and Views from the student fellows on what’s hot in the antitrust and consumer world

Consumer guides to antitrust and consumer protection law

Research and recommendations to U.S. and international competition and consumer protection agencies and legislatures

News and Views

Because the antitrust world is so fast paced, the Institute wanted to create a vehicle to comment on current events while they were still fresh. This section of the Institute website will feature regular news summaries and commentaries from the Institute Director, student fellows, members of the United States and International advisory boards, and friends of the Institute which are shorter and more journalistic than the scholarly works in the working paper section. If you have an item that you would like to submit for consideration please email it to antitrust@luc.edu or swalle1@luc.edu.

This on-line casebook examines the fields of international antitrust and international trade law. In general, it examines how the United States and other jurisdictions regulate competition among firms which do business abroad. This will include how competition policy regulates individuals and firms located outside the United States in their competition with United States firms as well as the rules governing United States firms.

These materials are intended for use in a U.S. style law school class or seminar and designed to provide the base knowledge necessary to engage in sophisticated research in the field and to produce a research based paper of 20-25 pages in length. By necessity, these materials are in English and have primarily a United States focus. The value of an on-line casebook in this field goes beyond the merely the cost savings and convenience. It is also an opportunity for a collaborative exercise that will allow for the creation of a more in-depth and creative set of materials that can be done in traditional hard cover format. Use of the casebook for educational purposes with attribution is available on a royalty-free basis under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License, available at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/us/. For all other uses please contact Professor Waller at the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies at Loyola University Chicago School of Law or swalle1@luc.edu.

I therefore invite any competition law teacher or scholar to submit additional chapters on other competition law topics or jurisdictions not covered in these materials for inclusion in future iterations of these materials. Materials must be original or accompanied with proof of permission/license to use for this purpose and be in English and in either Word or Word Perfect. Submission of materials constitutes your permission to include the material in future editions of the on-line casebook for educational purposes with attribution available on a royalty-free basis under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License, available at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/us/.

Submission of materials also constitutes permission to edit the submitted material for style, content, and compatibility with the existing text, although every reasonable effort will be made to allow you to review edited material before posting on-line. I look forward to working with the global competition law and policy community to make this the most effective and interesting teaching tool possible.
