Event number:

Area of law:

Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the basics of EC competition law, in particular:
  • the origins of European competition law and its development by means of secondary law and court jurisprudence;
  • the economic foundations of European competition law;
  • methods for defining the relevant market;
  • the rules applying to (vertical) distribution agreements;
  • the rules applying to horizontal agreements;
  • the specific problems of contracts involving the transfer of technology;
  • the abuse of a dominant market position;
  • regulation 1/2003 on decentralisation;

Participants will have the opportunity to prepare in advance through an e-learning course via the ERA website, and to deepen their knowledge through case-studies and workshops during the summer course.

A visit to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg with the opportunity to attend a hearing is an integral part of the programme.

The size of visitor groups to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is strictly limited by the Court for practical reasons. Unfortunately we are therefore unable to guarantee that all summer course participants will be able to attend. Places for the ECJ visit will be allocated to registered participants on a 'first come, first served' basis.
