LL.M. in Competition Law and Economics facts

Full Profile

The Program

As part of its educational purpose, the BSC organises since 2010 a high-profile, specialised study programme in EU competition law and economics.

From now on, the programme in competition law will be jointly organised with the University of Liège (ULg) and Saint-Louis University (USL-B). Students who pass their exams and dissertation will receive an ‘Interuniversity Certificate in Competition Law’, which is worth 32 credits.

The LL.M. programme is divided into 10 modules and 3 Clinical Seminars covering the full range of EU competition law and economics issues: joint ventures and horizontal cooperation agreements, vertical agreements and distribution networks, cartels, abuses of a dominant position, mergers and acquisitions, State aid, etc.

In line with the approach followed in the past four years, this LL.M. will this year again provide
(i) a comprehensive and structured teaching curriculum (+ periodic assessments);
(ii) a multidisciplinary approach, with courses in both competition law and economics taught by leading experts from the private and public sectors; and
(iii) a schedule that is fully compatible with the requirements of professional practice. 

To date, the LL.M has attracted more than 400 participants from all areas and practices (e.g., in-house counsels, lawyers, economists, civil servants, etc.). With this background, it is fair to say that the BSC's LL.M. has already gained a strong educational recognition.
