Course Description:

NOTE: This seminar will meet on Thursdays (5:15pm-7:15pm) and Fridays (9:00am-11:00am) on the following dates: January 23; February 5, 6, 19, 20; March 5, 6, 19, 20; April 9, 10, 23, and 24.

The seminar studies antitrust and related laws as encountered by practicing lawyers in today’s complex global economy in subject areas ranging from traditional industries to multinational/international transactions to cyberspace and high-tech industries. The seminar is team-taught by Covington & Burling lawyers to explore a diverse antitrust practice encompassing counseling, transactions, and litigation. The seminar covers problems involved in dealing with Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission proceedings and in dealing with private suits including mergers, joint ventures, and intellectual property and international trade matters. There is coverage of bread-and-butter advice that companies need for distribution, pricing, and other aspects of their regular business planning. The seminar also discusses the economic theories that provide much of the underpinning of antitrust law. The seminar concludes with a mini-moot court, which consists of an appellate brief and an oral argument, and provides an opportunity to gain practical experience with a real-life antitrust problem.
