Antitrust Economics 101

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Our friends at Competition Policy International have asked that we highlight what looks like it will be a great opportunity - Antitrust Economics 101 with Josh Wright of George Mason Law School.

I would like to invite you to join us for the CPI Learning Center’s next interactive web seminar, “Antitrust Economics 101” presented by Professor Joshua Wright. This course is a three-part series taking place over consecutive weeks.

Session One, “Demand” will take place on Wednesday, May 13 at 12 pm E.S.T.

Session 2 (Supply and Cost) and Session 3 (Examples and Applications) will take place on the following Wednesdays, also at Noon E.S.T.

In the context of modern antitrust litigation, Professor Wright will focus on the key economic concepts underlying modern antitrust law, such as demand, substitution and income effects, elasticity, optimal pricing, price discrimination, supply, cost, consumer and producer surplus, cartel formation, and critical loss analysis. 

This course is especially recommended for those who need or want a solid knowledge of the economics that drive antitrust analysis and decisions.  It will also be useful for those who would like to brush up on economic concepts. Although not just for lawyers, Professor Wright’s course has significant professional and practical content for attorneys practicing in the antitrust and competition policy arenas, both domestically and abroad.      

This series will be presented over CPI’s Global Learning Platform which delivers lectures globally in real time. The only technology required is a computer with a flash player and a telephone.

To register: visit our website at The fee for all three classes, with CLE credit, is $355; without CLE credit the cost is $129. Discounts for multiple users from the same organization and courtesy admissions for competition authorities are available.
