This course is for both those attorneys new to the antitrust laws and those who would like a refresher course. The course will begin with an overview of the Sherman and Clayton Acts, as well as a summary of the most common antitrust issues that arise for companies and in the courts. The course will then use recent antitrust cases and issues to illustrate the ways in which the antitrust laws impact consumers and the economy even when people are not aware of them.
