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.
• 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
