Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

The Brussels School of Competition

with one comment



Applications for the Brussels School of Competition specialised LL.M. in Competition Law and Economics are now open. I have been teaching at the BSC since its creation, and despite the painful exam grading process [which occupied me for a couple of flights this week; yes, Brussels wasn’t big enough for Trump and me and I had to leave], it is always a great experience. It’s hard to find more motivated students, a better crafted programme and a more impressive faculty) (I guess the programme is also appealing for “visiting professors” because we only have to lecture for one -long- afternoon and then one can claim to be a professor all year long…).

Jointly organised with the University of Liège and Saint-Louis University, this one-year programme in Competition Law and Economics and entirely taught in English covers every major aspect of European competition law and its economic issues such as joint ventures and horizontal cooperation agreements, vertical agreements and distribution networks, cartels, abuse of dominance, mergers and acquisitions, state aid, etc.  As we noted in an earlier post, the BSC is now, for very good reasons, in the top 10 for specialized competition law LLMs worldwide.

This programme targets in particular:

  • Business Lawyers and Economic Consultants
  • In-house Legal Counsels, Managers, Executive and Public Affairs Experts
  • Civil servants
  • Students who have just graduated from university (Law or Economics)

The programme offers:

  • the unique privilege of seeing Alfonso Lamadrid teaching and of participating in one of his legendary simulation games;
  • a comprehensive and structured teaching curriculum with periodic assessments ;
  • a multidisciplinary approach, with courses in both competition law and economics taught by leading experts with deep expertise and vast practical experience in competition law from both the private and public sector ;
  • Friday afternoon sessions from 12.30 to 18.00, a schedule that is fully compatible with the requirements of professional practice ;
  • a student’s opportunities to socialise and meet fellow competition professionals on a regular basis;
  • an ‘interuniversity certificate in competition law’, which is worth 32 credits.
  • did we mention the unique opportunity of seeing Alfonso Lamadrid in action?
