Interdisciplinary legal research with economic and political perspectives Interdisciplinary legal research with economic and political perspectives

Competition law research in the School spans several areas – from cartels, to abuse of dominance and private enforcement of competition law. Our researchers' work is focused on Centre for Competition Policy (CCP), funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, which was set up with Core Centre Funding in 2004 and renewed in 2009.
 
The research undertaken in CCP is multi-disciplinary, with members looking at legal problems through the lens of economic and political science perspectives. Its active seminar series meets 35 times a year with presentations by centre members, other UEA colleagues and external speakers. It also organises several conferences and workshops every year, with speakers from across the relevant disciplines within UEA and from other institutions in the UK and internationally.
 
Many of the School's PhD students are in this area looking at questions from merger control to the criminalisation of cartels and energy regulation. Many have gone on to jobs at UEA, but also other UK University Law Schools.
