Today’s markets are characterized by rapid developments due to disruptive innovation and dynamic technological changes. As businesses adjust their practices to the changing market environment, the boundaries of the law are greatly challenged. 

About

Cases involving Google or Facebook as well as attempts to regulate AirBnB and Uber or the position of household energy producers may serve as examples.

The master track ‘European Competition Law and Regulation’ offers a unique program across European universities to specialize in competition law and study the regulatory framework applicable to economic activities in fast-moving and progressively digitalized markets.

The track follows a coherent set of strongly interrelated, and for that reason compulsory, core courses such as ‘EU Competition Law’ and ‘EU Regulated Markets’, but students can freely choose from various electives such as Globalization of Cartel Law and can specialize in particular areas of competition law and market regulation such as State Aid Law, Consumer protection, and sector specific regulation such as energy, telecommunications or banking law. In this track you will learn to fully understand and explain the complex web of market processes in the European law context and you will also obtain the fundamental legal skills that allow you to master new legal fields and solve a diverse range of legal problems.
