Executive Education: Regular course: Predation and Loyalty Rebates

March 12–14, 2020

Teach participants how to assess the conduct of dominant firms using economic principles and evidence: from building a theory of harm that is cogent to testing its key propositions using economic evidence. Techniques, concepts and methods will be applied to review a few selected cases, mostly in high-tech industries. A mock case will be developed together with participants organized in teams in charge of prosecution and defense.

Key benefits: 

• Learn how to distinguish a cogent theory of harm from a bogus one 

• Develop economic intuition in order to construct tests which can serve to establish or discredit theories of harm 

• Integrate your economic understanding with the legal framework so that you can effectively litigate abuse of dominance cases
