Competition Law and Policy
Last Updated Date:   3 June 2022

5 Credits,  Semester 1

Course Description:
This module will examine the competition law and policy framework in Singapore and will introduce students to the three pillars of the legal and regulatory framework: (i) the prohibition against anti-competitive agreements, (ii) the prohibition against abuses of market dominance, and (iii) the regulation of mergers and concentrations.

This reading requirements assigned for this module are "top heavy" - students should expect 80-90% of the entire 12 weeks' of reading to be done in the first 6-7 classes, when in-class quizzes based on these readings will be conducted. As such, students interested in taking this module are discouraged from also taking intensively-taught modules running during the first 6-7 weeks of the term.
