Brussels School of Competition to Offer Master (LL.M.) in Competition Law and Economics

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The Brussels School of Competition ("BSC") has been set up. The BSC is organised under the aegis of the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium ("FEB"). Its primary purpose is to provide a high-profile, specialised course leading to an advanced Master (LL.M.) in Competition Law and Economics. This course has been especially designed so as to be fully compatible with the requirements of professional practice.

Over the past decades, the European Union ("EU") competition rules have become a critical legal issue for companies in all sectors of the economy. With rules covering  a variety of practices including cooperation and distribution agreements, abuse of dominance, unfair trade practices and State aid, firms in the EU and elsewhere face increased antitrust exposure and, in turn, a significant challenge in terms of compliance. In addition to this, the introduction of industrial economics into the various areas of EU competition policy has considerably increased the degree of analytical sophistication of antitrust proceedings

To meet the growing demand for training in this discipline, we have established a full-fledged LL.M. programme which provides - unlike most Brussels-based seminars and conferences - (i) a comprehensive and structured teaching programme, with periodic assessments, and (ii) multidisciplinary courses in both competition law and economics.

The LL.M. boasts an impressive faculty, comprising lawyers and economists, officials and private practitioners, who are all acknowledged experts in their fields.For more information on the programme, please visit or send us an e-mail:
