Competition Law is an undergraduate elective course carrying 6 units of credit with three contact hours per week.
This course is an introduction to competition law. It examines Part IV of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA) (formerly the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth)), and the parallel state provisions of the Competition Code. The course does not address all provisions of the CCA, particularly the Australian Consumer Law. Through case analysis it develops the essential economic methodologies for applying the CCA to commercial conduct. A knowledge of commerce or economics is not essential for this course.
History and objectives of Part IV CCA, including current proposals for amendment
Economic foundations including concepts of market, market power and competition
Anti-competitive agreements, including price fixing, exclusionary provisions and provisions relating to joint ventures
Enforcement by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and remedies available to private litigants
