Why is economics so important for Competition Law? What is the role of competition in a free market economy? Why are there rules to prevent firms (or State) from distorting competition?

Part of the "École d'Économie de Toulouse" (EET-TSE), the professional track of the Master 2 "Economics and Competition Law" (ECL) prepares students to answer this type of questions by drawing on state-of-the-art models and methods of economics and econometrics and rigorously applying them to the specific topic of Competition Law. Students are trained to model industrial relationships and to develop a strong capacity to analyse and understand the functioning of markets and the behaviour of market players, as well as to know and develop a rigorous Law analysis of Competition rules. Courses are taught in English, mainly by TSE researchers and recognized Law Professors, as well as prominent visiting professors.
