Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Given that the number of countries with competition or antitrust laws increased from 31 to over 120 between 1985 and 2016, there is a growing need for legal specialists in this fascinating area. In particular, there is a need for people to practice in law firms, enforce policy in competition authorities and teach in universities. This course is designed to give you the knowledge and skills to meet that demand, and go on to a successful career in the sector. On this interdisciplinary course, you will examine the issues, concepts and principles that underpin the substantive law on competition control and policy. You will explore the economic, social and political forces that continue to shape competition law development, and discover the role competition laws play within commercial relationships. UEA Law School boasts several competition law specialists, all of whom are members of the Centre for Competition Policy (CCP), a leading interdisciplinary research Centre located at UEA.
