This student-friendly and engaging textbook is an excellent introduction to competition law. With a comparative approach, it gives clarity to the differences and similarities between EU and UK systems. Providing up-to-date coverage of cases and legislative changes, it explains the fundamental economic concepts of this area of the law.
Competition Law of the EU and UK 7e builds on the strengths of Mark Furse's original textbook to provide an engaging and approachable introduction to competition law. It offers up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the most recent cases and legislative changes. Taking a comparative look at the links and differences between EU and UK law, fundamental economic concepts which underpin the subject are also clearly explained.
The changes introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon and the implications of the recent economic crisis are highlighted throughout the book. This edition contains new features, including a chapter on state aid, a revised focus on procedural aspects (including an analysis of the White Paper on Damages and the first criminal conviction for breach of competition law in the UK), an in-depth look at the review of Article 102 TFEU, a study of the new UK Merger Guidelines, and an account of the key changes of the new EU block exemption for vertical agreements.
The inclusion of detailed case summaries, enhanced flow charts, and other useful visual aids contribute towards providing a stimulating approach to competition law, making it an ideal introduction to the subject for undergraduates and postgraduates new to this area of the law.
